Left Back Joe Green joined Leeds City from Cradley Heath St Luke's. According to the Birmingham Daily Post, who reported the move on 1st May 1915. "He was looked upon as one of the best defenders in the Combination." The defender, joined City in the spring of 1915 with the club uncertain of its future and competitive football likely to be suspended following the advent of World War I. His only appearance for the Peacocks came when he replaced George Affleck, in the last League game of the1914-15 season. It was at Left Back in a 0-2 defeat at Elland Road by Barnsley on 24th April 1915. It was reported in the Leeds Mercury: "Walker had in front of him a mediocre pair of backs, who were very shaky at the commencement of the game. Indeed, it was Green - Leeds City's latest recruit - who was responsible for Barnsley's first goal, which came after five minutes' play. Barnsley attacked on the left, and Lees sent in a rather low drive. Green, in attempting to clear, had his kick charged down by Fletcher, the ball going off the centre-forward into the net. Had the ball not touched Fletcher it was almost certain to pass Walker." Green was still on City's books at the start of the following campaign but never again figured in the first eleven.
