Lancashire-born keeper signed from Stalybridge Celtic who played for Leeds in the 1930s. He picked up wartime cup medals with Blackpool, for whom he guested without formally signing up.

Carolin Savage says: Reg Savage was my grandad. I have a bit more information about him which you might like to add to your website; Reg first played football for a local team, Taylor Bros (Eccles/Trafford Park, Manchester). The first 'proper' team he signed for was Stalybridge Celtic. Whilst still at Stalybridge Celtic, he guested a few times for Leeds United, before signing for them. During his time at Leeds, he met and married a local girl. They eventually moved up to Queen of the South, but during the war Reg was called up into the RAF and was based at Blackpool. Here he guested many times for Blackpool FC, appearing alongside, amongst others, Stanley Matthews and Stanley Mortenson. He also guested briefly for Derby County whilst in the forces. After playing at Nottingham Forest, he decided to retire and became a butcher, like his father, back in Swinton, Manchester. Despite having officially retired from football, he made a handful of appearances in goal for Accrington Stanley as a favour. In later life, he was a scout for various clubs, including Birmingham City and Bury. Sport, especially football, was always a huge part of his life. Reg died on 28 September 1997, succeeded by his Leeds-born wife, three children and six grandchildren.
