Jabba's Comments

Leeds-born winger that slipped through the net to join Huddersfield after representing Leeds Schools. O'Grady had a very successful time at Leeds Road, winning his first England cap against Northern Ireland in 1962: he scored two goals but had to wait six years before finally getting his second (and last) cap against France (he scored in that game as well). He also picked up 3 U-23 caps and played in a Football League representative side. In his 5 years at Leeds, he found himself in and out of the team - partly due to inconsistent form and partly due to injuries - and it was only really the 1968-69 season that he found himself a regular place. Even then, the emergence of Eddie Gray on the left and Peter Lorimer on the right looked to be limiting his prospects for the future. A move away from Elland Road to Wolves, Birmingham and Rotherham saw his injury problems follow him and he retired from the game in 1974.

John Randall says: Played for Town,as you show above.In early 1965 (I could have sworn it was '66!) he scored a brilliant goal, coming in from the left and stiking a right foot drive into the roof of the net fromoutside the penalty area.Great,unrealised potential. Happy days. Hope he is hale & hearty. Great web-site
