On This Day: Alex Murphy OBE was born

Each day whilst we are all in Lockdown we will recall a famous Saints moment from the current day thanks to Saints Heritage Society.

22nd APRI 1939.‬

‪Schoolboy prodigy Alex Murphy OBE was born in Thatto Heath! ‬

Just prior to the ‘witching hour’ on the eve of his 16th birthday the outstanding young scrum-half was salted away to Director Joe Harrison’s house in Eccleston, to play games of snooker before becoming a Saint.

‪An absolute ‘nail-on’ for a member of the Saints Greatest 17. Alex remains, to those who had the privilege to see him, one of their favourite home-grown Saints.

‪Happy birthday, Alex from everyone at St.Helens R.F.C.
