...plus the Stephen Prescott MBE bridge in my home town StHelens. Stephen Prescott MBE (26 December 1973 – 9 November 2013) was a professional rugby league footballer who played in the 1990s and 2000s. Prescott made his début for St Helens in 1993, and soon established himself as a brillant Rugby league star.In 2006, Prescott was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer and was given months to live. He set up the Steve Prescott Foundation in 2007, and went on to organise a series of money-raising initiatives. He raised almost half a million pounds for charity through the foundation, and was awarded an MBE in 2009 for his efforts. After a long battle with the disease, he died aged 39. In October 2013 a small group of people started a campaign to get the highest honour in English Rugby League the Man of Steel Award to be renamed after Steve. On 5 March 2014 the RFL announced that the Man of Steel award will be renamed after Steve and is now known as the Steve Prescott Man of Steel Award.
