England Disgrace

Ernie Hart swore at the referee in the West Riding Senior Cup final between Leeds United AFC against Huddersfield Town AFC in April 1933. He was reported and subsequently handed a 28-day suspension, and axed from the England squad that travelled to Italy and Switzerland the following month.

Beyond England

On retirement, he bought a bus and began a coach business based in Doncaster as E.A. Hart, which traded as the Beehive Bus Company (he had bought out the Foden company, which included KWU 24, left, and KWU 25-27), this prospered and later the company was purchased by Wilfreda Coaches of Bawtry and soon after they moved to the new Headquarters at Adwick-le-Street, Doncaster. The joint company traded as Wilfreda Beehive, a luxury coach company operating from Doncaster and now nationally known. However, in July 1947, after the Doncaster Co-op took over control of Beehive, Hart left to set up another bus company, Kildare Coaches of Knottingley. Kildares lasted until 1983 when they were bought by Smiths-Happiways Travel - Old-bus-photos
