Herbert Leavey, the ex-Barnsley forward, who lost an English Cup medal through getting his leg broken in a fourth round re-play, has been appointed to the position of coach and trainer to the Eindhoven Club in Holland. It is nine years years since the Dutch team appeared at Anlaby road.

  1. The club he trained in Eindhoven was PSV (the John Leavy you can find in many sources is actually Bert Leavey) He lived and worked in the Netherlands for many years. Other clubs he coached include HRC (Den Helder) and Gouda. He returned to England in 1952 and died in London in 1954.
