Leon Gall

Post by Scottish » Fri Nov 25, 2011 7:43 pm

A query from Donald Nannestad: "The question I am attempting to put on is a request for assistance in tracing an obituary or date of death for Leon Gall who played for Queen of the South Wanderers, Gainsborough Trinity, Doncaster, South Shields, Doncaster, Wellingborough, Luton T, Belfast Celtic, Glossop, Belfast Celtic and Doncaster Rovers. My last reference is of him signing for Doncaster in February 1908. He was born Leon Gambetta Gall (15 April 1879 in Alloa - his parents having married in Edinburgh in June 1865). I have found him in the Censuses for 1881 and 1891 living in Alloa and in 1901 living in Doncaster but have drawn a blank as far as 1911 is concerned.

Any ideas?

My interest is because I am compiling a complete record and who's who of Gainsborough Trinity in the Football League (1896-1912)"

Hi, maybe a relative of mine, great grand father. I have a photo of a Leon Gambeti Gall who i know was scottish and in the photo he is with a football team in a white and black/dark colour stripped kit(photo is in sepia) so he played football. according to what i kno he was born later 1896? you say he played for belfast? well his wife/spouse(not sure if married) was from belfast if its the same guy so this would make sense. I would be interested to see these census records and anything else you have.
Thank you
