Jabba's Comments

A keeper who made his wartime debut for Leeds at the age of 18, and played quite a few more games before the league resumed in peacetime. With the arrival of Jim Twomey, Hodgson's chances were going to be limited, so he was released and moved up to Boro as second-choice keeper.

Chris Brown says: John was a miner from Murton Co Durham,who played fro Murton before joining Leeds. His son still lives in the area. I am married to johns great niece,and have several photographs of john including a Leeds team photo but i am not sure of the year but it is of Leeds.
