Life and careerEdit
Patrick was born in York in September 1921. He made his league debut for York City on 2 November 1946 in a home win against Stockport County, in which he scored. During that season, 1946–47, Patrick scored 17 goals in 23 appearances. The following season, he scored 19 goals in 27 games, but his best season was in 1948–49 when he scored 26 times, including five against Rotherham United in November 1948. This tally of five goals remains an individual club scoring record for York in The Football League.
Patrick became the first York player in peacetime football to score 100 league goals for the club by the end of the 1951–52 season. The following season Patrick finished playing first-team football. He had scored 117 goals in 241 League and Cup appearances for York. This means he is fourth in York's all-time scoring lists behind Norman Wilkinson, Keith Walwyn and Arthur Bottom.
