Jimmy Leadbetter was Albert Tatlock's opposite manager for The Flying Horse when that establishment challenged the Rovers Return Inn to a Christmas Day tug-of-war in December 1967. Albert had tried to secure the services of two banned rugby league players to supplement the rather puny Rovers team but failed and the beefier rival team easily won.
Jimmy and the team later turned up at the Rovers to collect their winnings, decided by a confident Albert without telling anyone: free beer for the rest of the day. When they found out that pensioner Albert would have to foot the bill, they decided that they would only have one pint each.
- Credited as "2nd Flying Horse Man", the character's name was given in dialogue.
