Jabba's Comments

Popular and pacy left-winger who was picked up on a free from Yorkshire Amateurs after Sheffield United had turned down the chance to sign the Leeds-born player. Played a crucial part in the Leeds side that climbed back up to Division 1 in 1956 and kept his place through three years before being released to Sunderland in 1960.

Pippa and Gareth Horton say: Jack Overfeild:Ann Horton(nee Overfield) is our Nana, we have never met Jack but would like to know a bit more about him. We only have one old family photo of jack playing and would like to see a few more photos/pictures of him.

Phil says: The first gamer I saw was Arsenal v. Leeds at Highbury in 1957. My two memories were Leeds striking blue and gold strip and Jack's sprinting down the wing - he had a fine game

Jan Overfield says: I met Jack Overfield over 41 years ago. He is the best. Modest,honest,kindhearted and supportive.(but then I would say that,Jack Overfield is my dad.) He is enjoying his retirement playing lots and lots of golf, regardless of the weather. He is keeping well and extremely active. If I can help you with anything else, let me know.

Jimmy says: Jackie was a thrill to watch, I remember as a lad watching the game and looking forward to Jackie getting on the ball. Hope all is well Jack you will never be forgotten.

John Corcoran says: Hi is Jack still going strong and if so would it be possible to get in touch with him. A Sunderland fan.

Jan Overfield says: Jack doesn't use the internet but I could forward a letter of some kind to him and I'm sure he'll get back in touch with you my email is: j.overfield1 _at_, Thanks
