149 John Middlemas

Biography

Right half Middlemas, christened John Robert but often known as Jack, spent the 1922/23 season with Hull City, filling in occasionally for legendary long term right half Tommy Bleakley.

Hailing from Easington in the County Durham coalfields, Middlemas played for local side Herrington Swifts and Northern league club Blyth Spartans prior to trying his hand at League football at Hull City.

Middlemas joined the reformed York City on leaving the Tigers and served the Minstermen in the Midland League for six years, amassing well over 200 appearances. Middlemas left York City in 1929 after their elevation to the Football League, replacing Ashington in Division Three North. He saw out his career back at Blyth Spartans.

Middlemas passed away in April 1984.
