frank scott-walford leeds city manager Frank Scott-Walford was offered the job of Leeds City manager on the same day that Gillies's contract expired, 16th March 1908. Scott-Walford 36, from Birmingham was currently the manager of Brighton after a playing career which saw him keeping goal for Tottenham Hotspur, Lincoln, Small Heath and Aston Villa. While at Brighton it was reported that Scott-Walford was involved in payment irregularities by the FA but that didn't stop the Leeds officials from approaching him with the offer of a job.
Early efforts by Scott-Walford as manager were impressive and reported favourably by the Yorkshire Evening Post. Like Gillies before him though the going become tough because of a lack of funds. Scott-Walford tried hard to find the winning combination, recruiting a sring of players he knew from Brighton but there was no solid advance in fortune.
Later Scott-Walford turned his focus on Ireland and brought in many players from the Emerald Isle. Several even won Irish caps while at Leeds but overhall they again failed to shine. At the end of season 1911-12 Leeds City had to apply for re-election and Scott-Walford with lack of funds called it a day as manager in May 1912.
