Jabba's Comments

Peter Hampton joined Leeds as a youngster with England Schools caps under his belt, but taking over Terry Cooper's left-back slot was never going to be an easy ride for anyone. In one of his rare substitute appearances - in what was in fact his only game in 1975-76 - he smashed a much-remembered winner against Burnley at Elland Road. His best run in the side came in 1976-77, but most of the time found that Frank Gray or Trevor Cherry were preferred in his position. A solid and reliable player who never let Leeds down when he was needed, he had decent spells with Stoke and Burnley and a brief stay at Rochdale before ending his playing career with Carlisle. He took up the job of first team physio at Brunton Park and was last heard of managing a non-league outfit.

Cheers to Rochdale's programme editor Mark Wilbraham for the photo.

jit says: If I recall correctly, the James Taylor of Leeds Utd. I mean the hair and the moustache. Not sure if he can hum a tune.

Neil Bryson says: if i remember correctly Peter attended Etherley Lane Junior School in Bishop Auckland Co.Durham and when he was 12 or 13 he was a great prospect in the making so to speak. He was a bit older than me and he was really protective of his younger sister Julie who i used to fancy like mad. Best thing was that round our way everyone was sunderland daft and we all know that sunderland beat leeds in the 73 cup final. Never really heard much about him after that. I just remember that he was the best footballer at our school.

tim (leeds) says: I was a neighbour of Peter Hamptons in Carlisle for 10 years or so, and knew his son. 'Pistol' Pete (on account of his fine moustache, and not his gun collection) Sorted us out for Wembley final tickets. Top bloke.

Julie Ward (Hampton) says: Hi im Peter Hamptons Sister Julie, I remember watching him at Bishop and then at Elland Rd with my dad and feeling very proud that he was my brother.
