Biographical Text

Harry Pollard, formerly with Sheffield Wednesday, made just four league appearances during the three seasons he spent with Exeter City in the late 1930s. He left to play for Rochdale.

Harry was an amateur with Liverpool prior to signing for Great Harwood in 1933, Bangor City in August 1934 and Tranmere Rovers in December 1934. Transferred to Sheffield Wednesday for a fee of £500 in 1935, he failed to make a league appearance for his new club.

Signing for Exeter City in the summer of 1936, Harry made his Grecians debut in a 2-1 home win over Torquay United on 2 September 1936. Playing in the next fixture against Clapton Orient, he only played once more that season against Queen’s Park Rangers at the end of December 1936.  Retained for the following two seasons, Harry made a solitary appearance against Gillingham in January 1938 before eventually signing for Rochdale in the summer of 1939. 

Playing twice in the abandoned 1939/40 season, Harry moved on to Accrington Stanley in 1940 and also played for York City as a wartime guest player.

Harry died in 1991 in North Yorkshire.
