A Wrigglesworth (right-back) 1915

Wrigglesworth, who at the time was playing for Goole Town, tried out for Leeds City at the start of the 1915/16 season, and earned credit for his displays at full-back alongside George Affleck in pre-season trials.

Wrigglesworth came in at right-back at home to Lincoln City on 25 September in place of the injured Tommy Lamph. Skipper George Law moved forward to right-half with Wrigglesworth partnering Affleck. He was found wanting, "erratic in his kicking" according to the Yorkshire Post, though the Mercury described his as "by no means incompetent". Many of the Lincoln attacks came down his flank, exposing his flaws, but Leeds won the game 2-1.

Wrigglesworth never appeared again for City and he is understood not to have played in the Football League for any other club.
