James "Jimmy" Yardley was a Scottish professional footballer, best known as a player for Luton Town.

Playing career[edit]

Yardley signed for Luton Town from Clapton Orient during the 1926–27 season, but failed to score before the season ended. During 1927–28, his first full season with the club, Yardley scored 23 league goals. He continued his good form the next season, scoring 19. He continued his good form until 1932, when he was surprisingly sold to Charlton Athletic.[1]
