1915-1915 (Leeds City War-time Guest Player Details)

Right Back

Born: Unknown: Unknown

Debut: v Hull City (h): 02-10-1915

Height & Weight: Unknown

Dowling, who had come to Leeds City just prior to the start of the 1915-16 season, as a trialist from Bohemians of Dublin, was a guest who played at Right Back in a 3-1 win in the home fixture with Hull City on the 2nd October 1915. Regular right-back and skipper George Law had to move from his normal position to that of right-half in place of the injured Tommy Lamph. Another trialist full-back, Wigglesworth, had been found wanting when given his opportunity. The Evening Post reported that Dowling had "ability and should be worth developing"; nevertheless he did not appear for the club again with the more experienced Charlie Copeland returning to tie down the right-back berth. Nothing further is known of Dowling and it proved to be his only appearance for Leeds City.
