Jabba's Comments

Tall and experienced centre-forward signed by Don Revie to bring more of a cutting edge to the attack as Leeds went for promotion. Spent the majority of his career with Boro, where he linked up with Brian Clough and won 4 of his 6 caps. A prolific marksman, his goals were crucial to Leeds winning promotion. After just over two years at Leeds, Peacock started picking up more and more injuries, and so he was released to Plymouth, where he played on until forced to retire through injury in March 1968. He returned to Middlesbrough and remains a popular figure with fans in the area and at the games.

Joe Symington says: I know Alan Peacock, he's my Grandad. I've never seen him play though I've just seen his photos, shirts and caps.

harry symington says: I am his grandson called harry symington I never seen him play but apparently he was quit good

Colin McNamee says: The man made his name from the Brian Clough rebounds, as anybody who followed the Boro at the time will be able to confirm. Alan was not much use, but he played the game and had he been around for the SKY revolution, even he would have made a bob or two.

lee cook says: i am a relative of alan peacock in some way, i just found out about a week ago and was over the moon i am related to a footballer especially excited as he played for middlesbrough

Leslie H. Tindale says: I went to Smeaton Street School with Alan, a few things stick out in my memory. He only ate the skin off an apple then gave the rest away, then I caused him to fall off his bike in Morris Street. He was great in the air, but only one footed.
