DRFC Jack Teasdale 1929-2018

Former Doncaster Rovers player Jack Teasdale has died at the age of 88.

Teasdale made 120 appearances for Doncaster during almost seven-years with the club before injury ended his career.

The Doncaster born wing-half was signed by Peter Doherty in October 1949 from local non-league side Rossington Miners Welfare, joining up with his former Rossington teammate Brian Makepeace.

Teasdale made his Doncaster debut in April 1951 in the 4-1 win at Chesterfield and he became a regular in the side in the Second Division.

The naturally left-sided player also played regularly on the right for Doncaster and his form saw him called up for an 18-match tour of South Africa in 1956 with a squad from the Football League organised by the FA. The squad included a number of internationals including future England manager Bobby Robson.

Unfortunately for Teasdale, he suffered a serious knee injury in the opening game, an injury that finished his career prematurely.

The thoughts of Vital Doncaster go out to the friends and family of Jack at this sad time.
