Methley United – Post War

The side was highly successful during the 1950’s under the management of Haydn Duggan, and were able to attract talented players from outside the village. Big tough matches could be guaranteed against Altofts, Swillington and East End Park both home and away.

A number of the players progressed into league football – Colin Ahearne went to Mansfield, the Longbottom twins went to Queens Park Rangers there were others but probably best known was Bernard Ward who had trials at Leeds United.

Attached is a copy of a certificate Bernard won on selection for the Yorkshire County team.
