R.I.P. Dave Dunmore

We were saddened to hear of the passing of our former player Dave Dunmore, who passed away in hospital in York after a brave battle against dementia on Sunday. He was 87.

Born in Whitehaven on 18 February 1934, centre forward Dave's goalscoring prowess at York City attracted the attention of many scouts and he was snapped up by Arthur Rowe, manager of our famous 'push and run' title winners in 1950/51, in February, 1954.

Dave's opportunities were somewhat limited initially by National Service, and then by the arrival of all-time great Bobby Smith in 1955, but he still managed to score 26 goals in his 81 appearances for us in the old First Division and FA Cup. He eventually left for West Ham in March, 1960 before a switch across east London to Leyton Orient a year later in March, 1961.

I may well have seen him but, sadly, I have lost most of my memories of my past.
