Thanks to Fred Duggan - Harry's great-nephew - for the photo above showing Harry as part of the Newport County squad.

A dual international - playing for both Northern Ireland and the Republic, Harry Duggan was a talented and speedy right winger picked up by Leeds from junior football in Dublin in summer 1925. He kept up an excellent scoring rate in his time at Leeds and when he moved on to Newport, his goals and leadership helped them to win the Division 3 (South) title. He returned to Leeds on his retirement from the game, and died there in 1968.

Peter Moore says: Harry Duggan and my late father (Stan Moore) were on the books at Elland Road at the same time, one of his sons Harry Junior married my cousin, and we still live nearby in Pudsey. Harry Junior and his brother Terry were both good soccer players also, and although I was younger than them,w e all played for the same local team, Beeston St,Anthony's, in the old Leeds Red Triangle League, I do believe that St.Anthony's is the oldest amatuer team in the country, but has now changed its name to Beeston.FC, is nothing sacred these days?

Barry Corcoran says: Harry Duggan was a good friend of my father Vince Corcoran who lived in Beeston. I recall going to his house ,just off Beeston Road, where I was given some of his international caps to examine when I was about 8 ie 53 years ago - I can still remember it vividly - there was a tassle on the top. Other soccer friends of my father at a slightly later era I think was Jim Twomey ,the Irish international goalkeeper, Jackie Milburn, Conn Martin. I was a friend of Harry's son - Paddy. Where is he now?

Paddy Duggan says: Paddy Duggan says: I'm Harry Duggan's youngest son now living in Morley only 5 minutes away from Elland Road Stadium. I remember Barry Corcoran well also his father who the last time we saw him was at a rugby match at Headingley with his other son Gerald. Would love to get back in touch if that's possible. The regret we have is that there are a very limited number of photographs of Harry in his playing days.

Damian Duggan says: I am honoured yo be his Great Great nephew.I was brought up with the Duggan right wing approach from Rob, my Dad and his brothers son. The one and only right whinger Therefore why did I turn out to be a right foted left winger Simple, because my Dad was always on the right But I am 100% Black & white
