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
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.
