A Kaye (outside-right) 1916

When Leeds City played at Barnsley in a Midland Section wartime game on 18 November 1916, they were without Clem and Jimmy Stephenson, Edward Hudson and Jack Hampson. A player from the home ranks was asked to help the visitors make up the numbers, not an unusual occurrence in the exigencies of war. Kaye was a left winger who played for the Tykes and he agreed to help make up the numbers, playing on the right wing. With a scratch team, the Peaocks unsurprisingly lost 4-1.
