Bill Poyntz was signed from Welsh junior football in 1921, and was halfway into his first season with the club when he became the first Leeds player to be dismissed in a league game - taking an early bath against Bury. The following week he became the 4th Leeds player to score a hat-trick - Leicester being the victims there. In 1922-23, Percy Whipp became the first choice inside forward, and Poyntz moved on to Doncaster. After his playing career ended, he was briefly in a coaching job with Newport County.
