Jabba's Comments

Another discovery from the non-league sides of the north-east, Billy Furness was a popular player who scored and made many goals for Leeds in the early 1930s. He picked up an England cap against Italy in 1933 and was a first team regular until his move to Norwich in 1937. He returned to Norwich after the war for a few games before ending his playing career and spending some time there as coach.
