Jabba's Comments

The man who scored Leeds' first Football League goal, that wasn't enough to guarantee him a regular place. He enjoyed some success with Stoke in the lower divisions, and toured South Africa with the FA in 1939. Towards the end of his career, he switched to defence on his return to the Potteries in his time at Port Vale. He died in 1972 at the age of 72.
