Harrogate Herald - 26th July 1916

Deep regret will be felt at the death of Second Lieutenant Harry E Appleyard, of the West Yorkshires, who has been killed in action in France. He is the youngest of two brothers who hold commissions in His Majesty's Forces, being 20 years old, and joined the West Yorks soon after war broke-out. He had been in France about a year. Second Lieutenant Harry Appleyard was the well-known town's cricketer and centre three-quarters in the Harrogate Old Boys' Rugby team. Shortly after leaving school he became a playing member of the Harrogate Cricket Club. He was almost immediately a success, especially as a bowler. He sent down a medium pace ball and got a lot of swerve on with the arm, and the ball had a puzzling break back, which made it very difficult to play. He was also useful with the bat. He was equally successful as a Rugby player. Here he was very steady on the defence, and did not lack enterprise on the attack. He played in the Yorkshire Cup-ties the season before war broke out, when the Old Boys reached the final round. He was the son of the late Mr Henry Appleyard, of Barnby Bank, Selby, and of Mrs Appleyard, 31 West End Avenue.
