    Default Saints Heritage Society

    I assume some of them are members on here so I would just like to say thank you to the fans who run the Saints Heritage Site and for the effort they have put in compiling the list of players in order of their appearance for the club.

    I popped down this morning to the open day to pick up a certificate for my Grandfather from 1895 it was interesting to fill in some of the blanks and to confirm some of the information I already knew about him.

    Although Grandfather died before I was born it brought back a lot of family memories of time spent as a kid with my Grandmother, parents and uncles and aunties as a rugby mad family talking about him and the early days of Saints.

    Of course I spent the rest of the day boring the pants off my own kids and grandkids telling them about it :-)

    Thanks again.

    And so you should, be proud of your own, even if it bores others, be proud of your own

    I agree. It’s a brilliant piece of work

    Wonderful to see my grandad at #670 with the picture I sent the society a few years ago

    Just looked up one of my ancestors James Ford I dont think he ever played a match he signed in 1915 but was killed in action in 1915, I have his Death Penny and a painting of him in his uniform before he went.

    As much a Saint as all of our other players through the years mate, respect to him.

    The work that they do is monumental. I can't imagine how many hours of research have gone into this project. It must be a true labour of love, and it is a superb resource. Many thanks to everyone that has produced this fascinating information for us.
