375 Ted Alberry

Biography

Centre half William Edward “Ted” Alberry joined the Tigers in April 1947 and made his only senior appearance in late May as Major Frank Buckley shuffled the substantial squad he had assembled for the first league season after World War 2. Although a defender by trade, Alberry started his only City match at centre forward and failed to impress. He stayed for the full 1947/48 season but played exclusively in the reserves and moved on that summer.

Alberry was born in Doncaster and worked as a teenage joiner at a local colliery prior to the start of World War 2. Towards the end of the war Alberry joined Doncaster Rovers and played in three wartime matches. In May 1946 he joined Leeds United but spent the whole season in the reserves prior to joining Hull City in April 1947.

Alberry was released by the Tigers in the 1948 close season and in August 1948 he signed for Gainsborough Trinity. Alberry played regularly for Gainsborough but he lasted only one season, joining South Yorkshire Yorkshire League side Brodsworth Main for the 1949/50 season. Alberry remained living in Doncaster and died in the Spring of 1978.
