Ashall: James (Jimmy)

1951-1961 (Player Details)

Full Back

Born: Temple Normanton, Chesterfield: 13-12-1933

Debut v Swansea Town (a): 01-10-55

5’10” 11st 6lb (1956)

He was spotted in the Chesterfield & District Youth League with Hasland Old Boys and represented Doe Lea Valley. Jimmy signed for Leeds as a seventeen year old, after a month’s trial. He turned professional in October 1951, but National Service in the Green Howards delayed his League debut. He was a little unfortunate to be understudy to two of United’s best ever and most consistent Full Backs in Jimmy Dunn and Grenville Hair, so his chances were at a premium, but after Jimmy Dunn retired he made the Right Back position his own for two seasons before leaving for Weymouth in July 1961. Whilst at the Recreation Ground, he again made the full back spot his own before moving on to Gloucester City in July 1964. It would appear that Ashall never scored a goal in senior football!
