John Pattison (outside-left) 1916

Born: Bedlington, 3 May 1889

Pattison graduated from local club Bedlington Colliery Welfare to earn an opportunity with Hull City. He was never a regular but amassed 48 League appearances in his three years with them.

He was in the Hull City teams that beat Leeds City 3-2 on 12 September 1914 and then lost 1-0 to Leeds in the West Riding Cup final on 11 November 1914. Fortunately for him, he was absent when the Peacocks won 6-2 at Anlaby Road eight weeks later.

By the time Leeds City played away to Lincoln on 7 October 1916, Pattison was on the books of the Imps. City arrived a man short and Pattison turned out for Leeds. He normally played right-back but on the day he played as left winger and scored the fourth goal in a 5-2 victory.

After the war Pattison saw out his days in non-League football with Scunthorpe & Lindsey United and then Bridlington Town.

He died in 1978.
