He was the brother of Dominic Kelly who served Leeds at about the same time, which added to the Kelly confusion as at one point there were three of them on the Leeds books at the same time. Mick was added to John Kelly’s name to distinguish him from his colleague Jack Kelly. “Mick” Kelly was signed from Accrington Stanley in the summer of 1933 with a reputation as a free-scoring leader. United were well served in the goalscoring stakes with Arthur Hydes and Billy Furness scoring regularly. He netted over fifty goals in the Yorkshire Midweek League and Central League for Leeds but first-team chances were few and after a proposed move to York City fell through, he joined Barnsley in October 1935, where he had three games without scoring. He joined Bradford City, making five appearances without scoring, before going to Non-League Bedford Town in 1935-36. During the war he served in the Irish Guards.
