Ernest Steele, a professional footballer and cricketer who played for Ossett Town FC and Ossett CC in the early 1950's. He had played league football with Oldham Athletic, Rochdale, Torquay United, Notts County, Crystal Palace and Millwall before the war, then in non league football after the war. As a cricketer, he played in Lancashire's 2nd XI before embarking on a long career in club cricket. After leaving Ossett, he went to Barnsley CC, where he played alongside Michael Parkinson and Dickie Bird as well as being groundsman. He moved to Tiverton in the late 1960s where he was manager for the 1970/71 season and later groundsman. He collapsed and died at the age of 86 whilst watching his son Hedley playing for Tivvy in 1997.
