James Robert PHIZACKLEA was born in Barrow in Furness on the 29th September 1898 and eventually became a professional footballer playing for Preston North End.
He started his footballing career playing for Barrow Submarine Engine Athletic, so presumably worked in the shipyards. He went on to play for Nelson before being transferred to Preston for a reported £1000-00. He later played for South Shields and Thames.
At sometime in his career he married Rose KELLY, daughter of William KELLY and Ellen (Nellie) CURRAN. Rose was my father's 1st cousin.
Is there anybody able to give me any more information on James and his family. I have applied for his birth certificate, which will hopefully arrive in the next few days, from which I will then know his parents names and address at birth.
The above information was given to me by Preston North Ends historian, Ian RIGBY, to whom I am most grateful and any further information I obtain will be shared with him and the club.
Best wishes, Ian Curran.
