Football career

Womack was born in Denaby, near Doncaster and played his early football with Denaby United before turning professional with Derby County in October 1957. He spent two years with the Baseball Ground club, but only made two appearances in the Football League Second Division. [1]

In May 1959, he moved to the south coast to join Southampton of the Third Division. With John Sydenham established in the outside-left position, Womack was unable to break into the first team and spent his year at The Dell in the reserves, where he made 20 appearances, scoring three goals. [3] The "Saints" ended the season as champions, but shortly afterwards Womack was released.

He then joined Workington of the Fourth Division for a season, making nine league appearances. [1]


Womack died on 8 November 2010 at his home in Barnby Dun, near Doncaster, aged 76 years. He was married to Doreen and they had three children. [4]

The 1936–37 season was the 42nd season of competitive football by Southampton and the club's 15th in the Second Division of the Football League. Another disappointing campaign marred by financial problems and personnel changes saw the Saints finishing 19th in the Second Division league table, equalling their worst performance in the flight set just two seasons previously in 1934–35. After picking up a few early wins and starting off around mid-table, the club's form worsened and they remained in the bottom half of the standings from late-November until the end of the season. Southampton finished the campaign with 11 wins, 12 draws and 19 losses in the league, which was exactly the same tally as 1934–35, but even closer to the relegation zone with just four points more than Bradford City in 21st place – the first demotion spot.

The 1937–38 season was the 43rd season of competitive football by Southampton and the club's 16th in the Second Division of the Football League. Despite an appalling start which saw the side spend much of the first month of the campaign in the relegation zone, the Saints finished the season 15th in the league table – their highest position in four years. With manager Tom Parker entering his first full season as Southampton manager, the club made a large number of signings in the summer, including high-scoring winger Harry Osman and young inside-forward Ted Bates, who would go on to make over 200 appearances for the club and serve as manager for almost 20 years. Southampton finished the 1937–38 season with 15 wins, nine draws and 18 losses, six positions but just three points above the first relegation place.
