Jabba's Comments

Horatio Iggleden was a talented player who was snapped up by Leicester during the war while he was still in the RAF as a pilot. Leeds swapped Ken Chisholm with Leicester to acquire Iggleden's services, and it proved an excellent deal. He was top scorer in one season - and repaid Leicester for the work they'd done in developing him by grabbing a hat-trick against them in 1954. He spent a year at Exeter but returned to Yorkshire to play non-league football with Goole.

Terry Iggleden says: He is my dad - and he was never in the RAF.

Roger Davison says: my mother's maiden name was Iggleden and she was from Hull. My Father who died in 1972 told me that there was an ex footballer in the family who played for Leeds. This could be the man do you know of any of his relations?

Shaun Iggleden says: Ray Iggleden was my dads' cousin

Derek Iggleden says: He's my fathers cousin. Mr name is Derek and I Live in Huddersfield. My mothers name is Eileen and my late fathers name was Robert (BOB).
