Jennings: William (Bill)

1916-1916 (Leeds City War-time Guest Player Details)

Centre Half

Born: Cinderhill, Derbyshire: 25-02-1891

Debut: v Notts County (a): 21-04-1916

Height & Weight: Unknown

Jennings started his football career with Rigby Athletic and Arnold St Mary’s before joining Second Division Notts County in 1913, making twenty appearances in their promotion-winning season of 1913-14. He added a further twenty-two appearances and one F.A. Cup appearance before the War caused the Football League to cease fixtures. It was during the war that he made his only appearance as a guest for Leeds City, in the unaccustomed role of Outside Left against his own team in the final game of the 1915-16 Principal Tournament, quite likely a goodwill gesture by Notts County as teams often used to turn up with men short and made up their team as best they could. After the War he joined Non-League Norwich City but moved to Third Division Merthyr Town in 1920 and scored three times in sixty-six League games and one F.A. Cup tie in his two years there. In 1922 he joined Third Division South Luton Town where he scored twice in one hundred and fourteen League appearances and three F.A. Cup matches during his three year stay. He moved to Northampton Town of the Third Division South in 1926 but only played three League games before dropping into Non-League football with Peterborough & Fletton United before finishing his career in Canada with Hearts of Winnipeg. He died in 1953
