Hi gadget,
im not sure if you still have access to the Football League Players' Records. Im looking for any info on my G.Grandfather, JAMES TILDESLEY. I know that he was born in 1881 in Halesowen. He played for Newcastle united, Middlesbrough and Leeds. Any info you could give me would be great.

Hi asolomio and welcome   :)

I still have the listings  but it's very small print so I'll have to get my magnifying glass out and get back to you - probably tomorrow if that's OK  :)

Newcastle and Leeds -not sure about that  ;D ;D ;D

asolomio

What other information do you require ??

Can I suggest you contact each individual club, most have a historian/archivist, who should be able to assist with further information and photographs

Kind regards

Simon

PS.  My wife has a load of Halesowen Tildesleys in her tree

Hi Gadget
A request here that is very close to your limit of research but could you please check for Albert 'Bert' Hayes who played for Wolves & Wrexham during 1938/39

Best wishes

Getting the Hayes and Turners mixed up - nothing on the Bert Hayes. Could he have played after 1939 ???
