Jabba's Comments

Left-winger who was a reliable back-up player in the early 1950s, but could never quite make it as a true regular in the side.

Darron Tyrer says: not enough credit has been given to a man who gave so much to the game of football.

John Cawthorne says: Arthur Tyrer began his playing career with Mossley in the Cheshire League and was transferred to Leeds United for a then club record 2,000 fee in September 1950. There is a photo of him on Mossleyweb where there is a complete A-Z of post war Mossley players. You will also find names like Howard Wilkinson, Roy Ellam, Peter Barnes and Russell Doig who were involved at various times with both Mossley and Leeds United.

j douglas says: when I saw Arthur play in the late fifties early sixties he played winghalf liked to stroke the ball about the shots had a decent side then with decent cup run losing to Stoke

Roland Brade says: where is Arthur now? He is urgently wanted for the first match between Aldershot and Accrington Stanley on 9th August 2003 at Aldershot

Tony Sharp says: I spoke to Arthur on 23rd June and he is doing well. He has moved to Hayling Island but is looking forward to meeting up with his former team mates on 9th August. A lovely guy to speak to with some great anecdotes from his playing history.
