One of those Yorkshire referees rarely seen at a League match but did officiate in West Riding Cup matches.Very steady-not flamboyant.
Had a beard sometime I think.

I remember him quite clearly as a solid, capable referee. For some reason he officiated at the first game of the season at Ewood Park about 3 seasons in a row. It almost became a case of thinking, first match of the season, ref Terry Morris.
