Player Profile

The Leicester-born left-back played only two league games for the club in the 1919-20 season, standing in for Sam Currie on both occasions, but his performances weren't of the standard to keep him involved in the first team.

Starting at Carey Hall and playing for Leicester Imperial and British United, Essom had originally been a rugby player and also played representative army football before his brief stint with Fosse.

He went on to assume the stewardship of the Ashby Soldiers and Sailors Institute and was also captain of Ashby United, where he finished his playing career.
