He later became Vice-Chairman and held this position until Paul Caddick took over in 1996. From 1996 to the date of his death he was a Vice-President of Leeds CF&A. The Leeds team will mark their respects before the Francis Cummins Testimonial game at Headingley this Sunday, kick off 3pm. The thoughts of everyone at Headingley are with the Stockdale family at this time.
