South Yorkshire Miner Firth was picked up as an eighteen-year-old in July 1927 from Glasshoughton. After only playing nine times in his first four years with the club, he eventually became a regular in 1931-32, playing a key role at inside right in United’s promotion campaign. Despite a useful goal-scoring record over the next few seasons, he struggled to retain his place in Division One and moved to Southend United in June 1935, where he scored twelve goals in thirty-three League games, and made one appearance in the F.A. Cup and two in other games. He joined York City in June 1938, but after one goal in six matches he moved to Rochdale in December of that year, where he found the net six times in eighteen appearances and retired during the war. He died in 1983.
