Irish keeper with two caps to his name - against Wales in a 1-0
win in Belfast before he'd even made his debut for Leeds, and
against England in a 0-7 defeat at Manchester the following season.
Despite the latter result, he still could have been in line for
more honours but for the intervention of World War 2. He returned
to Newry for most of the war, but took up his place with Leeds
again in 1945. He remained with the club until the start of the
1949 season when he departed for Halifax. He later did some
coaching with the Shaymen and scouted for Leeds.
Lynton Banks-Davies says: I'm searching for any pictures of him
- can anyone help?
