Fred Tunstall

January 1967

South Yorkshire Times, January 1967

Memories of former Sheffield United and England player, Fred Tunstall are recalled this week by this picture of the old Darfield St George’s team, kindly loaned to us by Mr E Taylor of 26 Harbour Dr, Sheffield.

Mr Taylor saw our recently published photograph of Fred Tunstall and sends an even older print.

I am sure it will be lots of happy memories for a lot of people.” He writes

However, we stand correction on one point, Mr Taylor says that Fred left Darfield St George’s to go to Scunthorpe, and not Wombwell.


Fred Tunstall (28 May 1897 – 21 July 1971) was an English footballer who played for Darfield St George’s, Scunthorpe & Lindsey United, Sheffield United, Halifax Town, and Boston United, as well as the England national team
