G D Lavery (right-back) 1916

G D Lavery was an obscure defender who made one appearance as a guest for Leeds City during the First World War.

He played right-back when they played away to Huddersfield Town in the Midland Principal Tournament on 12 February 1916 in place of regular choice Charlie Copeland. According to Leeds Roader in the Leeds Mercury, Lavery was a Raith Rovers player.

Also making his debut that day was the renowned inside-right Clem Stephenson, who heralded the start of a celebrated celebration with Leeds City by scoring in a 5-1 defeat. Lavery did not acquit himself as well and "did not perform up to his reputation."
