Biography

Inside forward Jack Peach had been on the books of York City and Barnsley during 1945, joining Selby Town in February 1946 then switching to the Tigers in October 1946 during the club’s first league campaign following World War Two. City had to pay a £20 fine to the FA when he was signed, as it transpired he was still registered to Barnsley on amateur terms.

Peach was a regular choice of manager Major Frank Buckley for five months, scoring goals at Darlington in the FA Cup and against Southport and Rochdale in the League. He missed the final seven games of the season but started the first match of 1947/48 against Lincoln City – this was his final Tigers appearance as he was replaced by George Richardson. After a short trial at Queens Park Rangers Peach returned to Selby Town where he spent the next decade, save for a short spell at Frickley Colliery.

Peach lived a long life, dying in Barnsley in February 2013.
