Jabba's Comments

Bob Kane (known as 'Bertie' apparently) was almost signed by Celtic but stayed with a junior side in Scotland before moving down to Elland Road in 1935. He got a regular berth in the side in 1936-37, but in subsequent seasons found himself competing for the number 5 shirt with Tom Holley. Kane saw service in Gibraltar during the war and made some guest appearances for Hibs when he was back in the UK. On demob he returned to Leeds to play just one more game at the start of the 1946-47 season before returning to his native Scotland. He died in 1985.
