Jabba's Comments

Terry Hibbitt was always going to find it difficult to win a regular place in the world class midfield that Don Revie had assembled, but he was happy to play his part as a squad member and was frequently on the bench, only getting one real long run in the side in 1967/68. He scored with his first touch on his debut, and picked up a winners medal in the 1968 Fairs Cup Final. He became better known after leaving Leeds, with good spells at Newcastle - with whom he made it to Wembley in the 1974 FA Cup Final - and then Birmingham. He returned to Tyneside in a swap deal that saw Stewart Barraclough go in the other direction and had two good seasons before a persistent injury forced him to retire from the professional game.

He spent some time with Gateshead, including a spell as their coach in 1986, and finally achieved some international recognition with a cap for the non-league England side. When he finally walked away from the game, he ran a pub in his adopted north-east home until his untimely death from cancer in 1994.

michael tunney says: we were in the same hospital ward room together in 1994 he told me some great storys when he was at leeds and newcastle, very nice person
