Player Profile

Douglas was a product of the West Ham schools football and was on the verge of the England amateur international squad when Fosse snapped him up on unpaid terms.

He actually enlisted in the Leicester Royal Horse Artillery in 1915 and only managed the odd wartime game between Leicester, Arsenal and Norwich City. He returned in April 1919 to play for Leicester in their last-ever game known as Fosse, although it was in the visiting B.E.F (France) team.

Four months after that game he scored the first ever goal attributed to Leicester, in the 2-1 home defeat against Wolves. He went on to become a regular winger for the club for another 18 months before he moved on to play for Burnley, Oldham Athletic and Bristol Rovers.

He retired through injury in 1931 and went on to manage a Tunbridge Wells sports shop for 32 years before going on to act as a water bailiff on the Medway.
