Jabba's Comments

Eddie Gray's first signing, Donnelly was a run-of-the-mill midfielder who nevertheless won himself a place in the Leeds line-up, but he found the veteran Peter Lorimer take his place when Lorimer returned to Leeds at the end of 1983. He returned to Scotland and was part of the Dunfermline squad that won promotion to the SPL in 1986, but fell out with the club two years later and found himself sacked at the end of the 1988 season.

John J. Donnelly says: Donnelly was always underated.

Richard Walker says: he was sick at the side of the pitch when sub against Shrewsbury - so the story goes.
