J Davison (centre-forward) 1916

Davison was thought to be a Newcastle United reserve who turned out for Leeds City as a guest when centre-forward Jack Peart was unavailable, on 22 April 1916 when the Peacocks lost 2-1 to Huddersfield Town. The Yorkshire Post reported: "Davidson (sic), who was deputising Peart at centre-forward, missed two simple shots directly in front of goal."

There is no record of his playing for Newcastle or any other side at a senior level.
