Jabba's Comments

Powerful inside-left who scored a hat-trick on his league debut for Barnsley and managed two hat-tricks while he was with Leeds. He became a regular at Elland Road and was a popular figure with the fans in his six years with the club. He picked up his only cap in 1929 in Englands 0-1 defeat by the Scots in Glasgow in a match decided just two minutes from time by a goal scored direct from a corner. Wainscoat left Leeds for Hull in 1931 and helped them to the Division 3 North title two years later. He died at the age of 69.

Lynda Circuit says: Can't believe this! Been searching for family info for some time...finally found this website and believe that Russell could be the brother of Dennis Wainscoat, also from Retford / Harthill. If anyone has any info on Dennis Wainscoat I'd love to hear from you, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Geoffrey Stephen Wainscoat says: 05/09/04. Russell Wainscoat was the brother of my grandfather Francis John and brother of Dennis Wainscoat who died as a Chelsea Pensioner. Iwas not born when Russell was playing.
