Jabba's Comments

Although I'm a bit too young to have ever seen him, the stats show that Tom Jennings was one of the greatest players to ever play for Leeds. Signed from Raith Rovers in 1925, he went on to score 117 goals in 174 appearances - a fantastic strike rate. Jennings suffered from occasional bouts of illness and but for that would have scored even more goals and maybe represented his country.

He moved on to Chester in 1931 where he bagged 31 goals. After that he went on to manage a couple of smaller clubs but never made it into management at the top level.

Tom Jennings says: Tom Jennings LIVES!!!! In the U.S!! In Colorado!!
