Jack Armand, nicknamed “Snowy”, was the first player from outside the British Isles to play for Leeds. He played in an Army International against France in Belgium before joining West Stanley in August 1922. Leeds signed him in December 1922, along with his team-mate Albert Bell. He was unfortunate to serve Leeds at the same time as Percy Whipp, Jack Swan, Joe Richmond, Tom Jennings and Russell Wainscoat, and Charlie Keetley. Although he never commanded a regular place in the Leeds line-up he was still worth £500 when he was transferred to Swansea Town in May 1929, where he scored ten goals in fifty-four League appearances. He represented the Welsh League against the League of Ireland in 1930, scoring twice in a 6-1 victory. He moved to Ashton National, where he scored forty-eight goals, in June 1931, before serving Southport and then Newport County from August 1932, scoring once in three League games, Scarborough from October 1933 and finally Denaby United from January 1934. He worked in Leeds at Taylor Rustless, on the Lower Wortley Ring Road, before moving to Grimsby, where he died in the summer of 1974.
