Jabba's Comments

Jack Taylor's playing career had seen its greatest success playing under Major Frank Buckley at Wolves in the 1930s, before subsequently turning out for Norwich and Hull. He managed non-league Weymouth before taking over at QPR in 1952 and for 8 years kept the team solid if not spectacular.

Leeds wanted a man to consolidate their position, but all Taylor could do was watch the drift as defence leaked goals and the team were relegated. With the team showing no sign of regaining its place in the top flight, Taylor resigned with 9 games to go in the 1960-61 season and subsequently drifted out of football.
