On being released by Bradford he had a short spell with Selby Town and then continued this high scoring ratio at Haig Avenue playing in all the matches of the FA Cup run which ended in the fourth round at Liverpool.

An all-round sportsman he was a good fast bowler and boxed in the Army until invalided out when he lost the middle finger is right hand at the Dardanelles.

He was employed in a Bradford wool warehouse all his working life.
