Jabba's Comments

Switched between league football and north-eastern junior clubs, Fred Graver joined Leeds with a reputation for being a good goalscorer, but only got 3 games in a year before being sold on to Southend. His son was also a footballer with Lincoln City. Fred died in early 1950.

Cristina Rivas Graver says: I am his grandaughter,his son Andy Graver played for Newcastle Upon Tyne before moving to Lincoln City and is still alive today. His other son Alfie Graver also played for Lincoln, sadly he is no longer alive. Fred Graver's brother is the grandfather of Barry Venison. If you want any photos just let me know. He was a handsome devil!!

doug dickson says: i did not see fred play but saw sone play andy with lincoln i think he had 3 spells there also played for nottingham forest. andy was a very good goalscorer similar to brian clough, he had the knack of being in the right place at the right time. good to hear he is still alive sorry to hear about alfie who did not get the breaks.
