The death of James Chapman


April 13, 1911
Followers of Association football throughout the country will learn with regret the death of James Chapman, trainer of the Leeds City team. Chapman was at the ground only a week ago, when he took suddenly ill. He consulted a specialist, who ordered his removal to Leeds General Infirmary, where he died from an internal complaint early yesterday morning. As a trainer Chapman was very successful with Scottish international teams, Dumbarton, Heart of Midlothian, and Liverpool clubs. He was fifty-six years of age and a widover. His son George Chapman plays at centre half for Glasgow Rangers.
