DAY 8 of Great Saints and we pick a rock- solid member of that Four-Cups 1966 team and a huge character – full back Frank Barrow.

Frank is the oldest the three Barrow brothers, with Tony and Billy also going on to sign professional at Saints.

Born and bred in the rugby league hot-bed of Thatto Heath, Frank was another from the St Austin's school conveyer belt in the mid-1950s. He would return to his roots in the 80s to become founder member of Thatto Heath ARLFC.

At Saints he was a rock-solid last line of defence at full-back, making more than 250 appearances for the Knowsley Road club between 1961 and 1972, scoring 13 tries.

Among his highlights would be beating Wigan 21-2 in the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley in 1966. On leaving Saints, Barrow joined Leigh where he collected the only medal that had eluded him at Saints – the BBC2 Floodlit Trophy one.

After hanging his boots up, Frank went on to coach at Oldham and Swinton, and assisted New Zealander Mike McClennan at Saints in the early 90s.
