Joel Coleman is the latest in a long line of players to make the short hop across the Pennines from Oldham Athletic to Huddersfield Town.

Those who watched Town’s last top-flight team of the early seventies will remember winger Les Chapman.

After that came the likes of strikers Colin Garwood, Mike Cecere and Keigan Parker and midfielders Lee Richardson, David Beresford and Tony Carss, Town’s current Under 18 chief.

But the first man to move from Boundary Park to the West Riding was, like Coleman, a keeper - and he made quite an impact.

Ted Taylor was transferred for £1,950 in June 1922 after 10 years, and a benefit match, at Oldham.

Legendary Town manager Herbert Chapman needed a replacement for long-serving Scottish stopper Sandy Mutch.

And he turned to 35-year-old Liverpudlian Taylor in what proved to be an inspired choice.

Taylor’s appearances for Oldham had been limited to 86 by the presence of stalwart Howard Matthews.

But he became first choice for Town, playing 129 times in a four-and-a-half year stint which was interrupted by a broken leg.

That denied him a league championship medal in 1925, but he was prominent in the first and last seasons of Town’s celebrated triple triumph of 1924-26.

Taylor, who was only 5ft 8in tall but brave an agile, also earned an England call up, winning eight caps, and played for the Football League representative team twice.

He finally earned a third title medal after moving to Everton in February 1927.

The Toffees took the honours in 1927-28, when Taylor was 41.

He still had time to end his League career with a spell at Wrexham.
