Harry Searson was a talented and brave keeper who served Leeds well at the end of the 1940s, but found himself replaced by John Scott towards the end of 1951. He was an all-round sportsman, and put his catching ability to good use during the summer when he switched over to playing local league cricket.

Clive Searson says: I have been a life long Leeds fan and have a son called Harry Searson named after Harry Kewell.It would be nice to find out if we are related at all.

Barry Searson says: My name is Barry Searson, Harry's nephew, I live in Bristol. My brother Brian is a mad keen devoted Leeds fan who lives in Falmouth

Jim Searson says: I remember watching Harry play at Craven Cottage for Leeds against Fulham in the late forties. It was watching him on that occasion that prompted me to take up goal keeping - The surname may have had something to do with it as well!

Paul Searson says: He is my grandad, still alive, well and married, we currently live in corby northamptonshire.

Harold Searson says: I am Harold Searson, and i played goalkeeper for leeds from 1948 to 1953. i now live in Corby Northamptonshire.
