Leeds Chirons 1973


Leeds Chirons 24th February 1973

This is another photograph I was unable to use in Leeds Who? The team is pictured before a home game against Moortown Stags. This is one of the few Chirons photographs I have managed to find that has all the players names listed on the back.
The team is:
Back Row Left to Right: Frank Cawood, Alan Flint, Andy Midgley, Geoff Harrold, Andrew Newton, Angus Ross, Stewart Collins, Mike Illingworth
Front Row Left to Right: Malcolm Gosling, Neil Ashton, Peter Birdsall, Ian Moore, Bill Oldroyd, Dave Illingworth, Roger Harris
The 1972/73 season was a successful one, Ian Moore captained a team that won the majority of its games in a fixture list that included clubs such as Bridlington, North Ribblesdale, Skipton and Ripon. Five of the players in the photograph are featured in Leeds Who? including Stewart Collins and Ian Moore whose memories of playing for Leeds Chirons are in Chapter 10 of the book.
