Back-up keeper brought in as cover for John Scott in 1953. Leeds only lost one of the 6 games he played, but Roy Wood was starting his career at Leeds, and the next time Scott was unavailable Wood replaced him and Tom Wheatley was on his way out.

Tom Wheatley says: After what was described above I refused a free transfer to Stoke City and moved back to the North East where I played semi professional for Horden Colliery Welfare in the North Eastern League. My career came to an end in 1956 when I lost a finger on a centre forwards boot while playing against North Shields. Nobody wants a four fingered goalkeeper.
