Jabba's Comments

Insider right who didn't have much luck. Having just started to establish himself at Leeds, George Ainsley was picked up and took his place. Then, having signed for Grimsby, the war broke out before he could play.

Craig says: John Thomson was signed as an 18 year old, after Leeds officials had watched him on a number of occasions, playing for Loanhead Station Ironworks team. He is described as 5ft 10ins, and 'well built'. Dalkeith Advertiser 19 July 1934
