Like Frank Butterworth, Coyne's only "real" appearances for Leeds
were in the 1945-46 FA Cup, but he played many games for the club
during the war. After a spell in non-league football, he finally
made his league debut at the age of 27 for Halifax.
Gillian Chappell says: I am Cyril Coyne's grand-daughter. When he
used to tell me his stories of playing for Leeds, I was very proud,and
thought of him as a 'famous footballer', and here this page is - I
cant believe it!! My Grandad-with his own web-page!!
Vicky Chappell says: Cyril Coyne was my grandfather as well. I am
very proud of him still I didn't know him until my grandma told me
about him even though I didn't know him I love him! And I love Leeds
as well so that is good i am glad he didn't play for any one
Paul Holroyd says: Cyril Coyne made just 4 appearances for Halifax
Town during 1951/52 after signing from Stalybridge Celtic.
