Jabba's Comments

Roy Kirk played in just about every position bar goalkeeper for Leeds in the early 1950s, but he failed to make any one position his own. He moved to Coventry in March 1952, and found himself a regular starter in the side for 9 years. Cambridge were a non-league side when he arrived, and he spent 3 years in charge, helping to set them on the road that lead to their election to the Football League in 1970. He died in 1984.

Hannah says: Roy Kirk is my grandad's cousin!
