Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Yates was an English footballer who won the FA Cup with Blackburn Olympic in 1883 and made one appearance for England in 1878 playing on the left wing. Yates was born in Blackburn but started his football career with Accrington in 1879. After a year, he joined Blackburn Olympic and was part of the team of tradesmen and weavers who achieved a small level of success in the 1880s, backed by local iron foundry owner Sid Yates and coached by former England player Jack Hunter. Their greatest success came when they overcame the dominance of local rivals, Blackburn Rovers, and the amateur teams of southern England to win the FA Cup in 1883.show more
