Jabba's Comments

George McNestry was a club-hopping winger from County Durham who only appeared in three games for Leeds. His main success came at Coventry, where he found a regular first team place in the side that pipped Luton for the Division 3 (South) title in 1936.

Richard Beck says: I was surfing the web. Your site interested me, as George was one of our family, as Alice his mother and my Mam were sisters as far as I can remember, Tom his father was one of the family who lived in Blackhall Mill at the Burn, I was born in Chopwell in 1921, another of his family ran the top club in Chopwell for years and still lives in the village, also another brother played goal for the Institute. Funny enough I never met George, but I heard about him from Dad. There are still some still alive in Chopwell. Sorry I could not be more specific.

Anne Errington says: my father Bill was George McNestry's brother. There are still a nephew and niece of George in Chopwell.

Tommy Dickinson says: My mother was Alice McNestry We lived at 16 blyth st Chopwell before we moved to 2 north terrace My mother used to talk about him.Ilive in St,Louis. USA and my sister lives in Leicester.Kate was the one who ran the Top Club

Andrea Stoddart (Reynolds) says: My grandfather Arthur Westell (married Kate McNestry-top club Chopwell),was the one who got George started in football. My grandfather played semi-professional football for Willington, Crook-wonder if anyone knows anything about that. After that he 'ran the lines' for at Sunderland. He took George all over for football trials. He was very proud of George, I have a clock that George bought my grandparents as a 'thank you'. Have 2 photographs of George in his 'football' gear. George's parents were called Joseph and Mary Ann

Molly McNestry says: George McNestry was my grandpa I only met him a couple times, because I live in Canada. I never saw him play football either but my dad always tells me stories about him. This is Molly again my dad also has all of Georges medals from back in the day. I am 14 and live in Canada so that is why I never really new George that well. My dad (John McNestry) is 61 and was George's only son. George had one girl too, Margaret.
