25 May 2020

Harold Schofield born May 25 1903

Manchester-born Harold began his professional career with Bradford Park Avenue but did not experience regular first-team action until he joined Chesterfield in May 1929. The full-back helped the Spirites to the Third Division (North) title in 1930-31, missing only one League game.

In June 1932 he joined Rovers and was an ever-present in his first season, but thereafter he was challenged for the left-back spot by Arthur Rodgers.

His appearances in the first three games of the 1934-35 season, which ended with Rovers as Division Three (North) Champions were his final games for the club.

In 1935 he signed for Queen’s Park Rangers but didn’t play any League games for them. His Rovers record was 69 appearances during which he failed to find the net. He died in 1977, aged 74
