Chester-le-Street, County Durham born left half Norman Watson began his football career after the First World War with Hylton Colliery in 1919, playing for Southwick in 1920 and Chester-le-Street in 1921 before being signed by Second Division Leicester City, making his Football League debut against Manchester United in April 1923. A fringe player in 1923-24, he played 11 times during the 1924-25 campaign as Leicester won the Second Division Championship and promotion to the top flight.

From the following season he was a regular in The Foxes’ first team and he made 18 appearances during their 1928-29 campaign as Leicester finished runners up in the League Championship in what was until 2016 the club’s highest ever League finish. Watson scored his only career goal in a heavy defeat at Grimsby Town in November 1930 and left Leicester in the summer of 1932 after 178 appearances, joining Notts County. However he made only 5 appearances in the summer and autumn of 1932, before joining North Eastern League club Workington in 1933.

After a season in Cumbria he joined  Cheshire League club Wigan Athletic and played for Horwich RMI in 1935 before re-joining Wigan Athletic in 1936, where he played until his retirement.

NB in the photograph he is shown with team mates Jack Brown, Jack Beby and Hugh Adcock.
