Harry Taylor, English footballer, Died at 81


John Henry “Harry” Taylor was born on October 6, 1935, and died on January 5, 2017.

He was an English footballer.

He signed for Newcastle United in 1951 and made his debut for the first team against Sheffield United in 1955.

Taylor was mainly used as back up to either Jackie Milburn or Len White.

Later, Taylor was loaned out to Fulham, but when he returned to the Magpies the following season, he found it hard to displace Gordon Hughes.

He left the club in 1960 to join Chelmsford City, and would later play for Cambridge United, before coming back to Tyneside to work at Newcastle Breweries.

Harry Taylor passed away at 81 years old.
