Jabba's Comments

Aubrey Powell's time at Leeds had just got underway when he had a career-threatening leg fracture during a game. It was 18 months before he resumed his career - and then he had less than a year before war broke out. He played for Leeds on numerous occasions during World War 2, when he also turned out for Wales. He won 5 full caps while at Leeds, playing in the home internationals, and went on to pick up 3 more after he left. He played non-league football for a couple of years after dropping out of the professional game.

Peter Moore says: Saw Aubrey Powell play when I was a schoolboy, late 1940's. In later years when I was working as a sales Rep, I met up with him several times in Leeds, because he was also travelling selling for a local sweet confectioner, which I remember belonged to his father in law.

Emma Powell says: I am Aubrey Powell's grandaughter he has seen this fact file and was astonished to see that he was on the internet. He suffers badly from arthritis in his hips and knees but still talks about his days when he was a footballer.
