Jabba's Comments

Batey won an FA Cup winners medal with Preston. He guested for Leeds several times during the war, signing on full-time when peace was restored. He only stayed for a year, moving on to Southport for a season before returning to his native north-east for a spell as player-coach in non-league football.
