This link to Jackie Overfield may be of interest:- http://tinyurl.com/cx562zf

I may be wrong but I seem to recall that Jackie lived in or near the Osmondthorpe area (my growing up area) of Leeds while he was playing for Leeds United.

One of the best sites for information about Leeds United through the years was generated by a bloke called Jabba and was updated weekly with news of the latest match.
The site has now stopped being updated - hope Jabba is fit and well - but a static copy can be found on the internet for information retrieval.
The page for Jackie Overfield is here....

http://www.leeds-fans.org.uk/leeds/players/313.html

....and the following information is included:

Popular and pacy left-winger who was picked up on a free from Yorkshire Amateurs after Sheffield United had turned down the chance to sign the Leeds-born player. Played a crucial part in the Leeds side that climbed back up to Division 1 in 1956 and kept his place through three years before being released to Sunderland in 1960.
Pippa and Gareth Horton say: Jack Overfeild:Ann Horton(nee Overfield) is our Nana, we have never met Jack but would like to know a bit more about him. We only have one old family photo of jack playing and would like to see a few more photos/pictures of him.
Phil says: The first gamer I saw was Arsenal v. Leeds at Highbury in 1957. My two memories were Leeds striking blue and gold strip and Jack's sprinting down the wing - he had a fine game
Jan Overfield says: I met Jack Overfield over 41 years ago. He is the best. Modest,honest,kindhearted and supportive.(but then I would say that,Jack Overfield is my dad.) He is enjoying his retirement playing lots and lots of golf, regardless of the weather. He is keeping well and extremely active. If I can help you with anything else, let me know.
Jimmy says: Jackie was a thrill to watch, I remember as a lad watching the game and looking forward to Jackie getting on the ball. Hope all is well Jack you will never be forgotten.
John Corcoran says: Hi is Jack still going strong and if so would it be possible to get in touch with him. A Sunderland fan.
Jan Overfield says: Jack doesn't use the internet but I could forward a letter of some kind to him and I'm sure he'll get back in touch with you my email is: j.overfield1 _at_ ntlworld.com, Thanks

Hope this is useful.
Just for the record, I saw Jack play too. Our old man used to take us down in the late fifties. I was just a boy then but I seem to remember that as well as his speed and skill on the ball, Jack had plenty of hair.
Funny what comes to mind.

Should have added that the comments on Jabba's internet site are not dated. So no way of knowing when they were posted. Some may be several years old.
