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

Height & Weight: Unknown
J. Davison was a guest who played Centre Forward in the home fixture with Huddersfield Town on the 22nd April 1916 which the visitors won by 2-1, Clem Stephenson getting City's goal.
He was thought to be one of the many Newcastle United players who, because of their teamís refusal to play football while the country was at war, gave their services to Leeds City. There is no
record of his having played first team football for Newcastle United and he only played the one game for Leeds City. The Yorkshire Post reported: "Davidson (Davison?), who was deputising
for Peart at centre-forward, missed two simple shots directly in front of goal.", and it was, unfortunately, the only comment on his ability .
