Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mick Bates is an English footballer who played as a midfielder in the Football League for Leeds United, Walsall, Bradford City and Doncaster Rovers. He is probably best known for playing for Leeds during the Revie Period. Bates was born in Armthorpe, Doncaster, and began his football career as an apprentice with Leeds United. Although primarily a "super-sub" at Elland Road, not being able to break in to the starting eleven due to Billy Bremner and Johnny Giles not releasing their places in the sides, Bates was still a very useful part of Don Revie's Leeds squad of the 1960s. Signing professional forms in 1964, Bates made 187 appearances for Leeds scoring nine goals, including one against Juventus in the 2-2 first leg of the Fairs Cup Final of 1971 away in Turin.show more
