Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leonard George Butt was an English footballer who played as a half-back in the 1920s, spending the majority of his career with Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic. Butt was born in Freemantle, Southampton and played his youth football with various local teams. Whilst playing on Southampton Common, he was spotted by a Southampton player, Bert Lee, who invited Butt to The Dell for a trial. Butt signed as a professional in April 1912 and spent the next two years as a reserve team player. On the outbreak of World War I, Butt enlisted in the 5th Hampshire Regiment and spent much of the next four years serving in India, where he played cricket for his regiment. On returning to Southampton at the end of the war, he found employment with the Thornycroft shipbuilding works at Woolston.show more
