Jabba's Comments

Eddie Bannister played football in glasses to correct serious short-sightedness but fortunately contact lenses were coming into more general use and he was able to use the slightly less ungainly method of sight correction later in his career. A solid enough full-back, he played quite a few games in the nightmare 1946-47 season that saw Leeds fail to win a single game away from home.
