Jabba's Comments

Carl Shutt's league career started at the relatively late age of 23, joining Wilko at Wednesday from Spalding United. After a couple of seasons with the Owls he moved down to Bristol City before Wilko arranged to swap Bob Taylor and one pile of cash for Shutty and another pile of cash.

Shutty quickly got himself into Leeds fans' good books with a hat-trick in his first game for the club, and his tireless running and unwillingness to give up any cause - however hopeless - made him a popular figure in his 4 years at Elland Road. Frequently used as a sub, the moment that all Leeds fans will remember best is his appearance at the Nou Camp against Stuttgart in 1992. In the replayed European Cup tie, he had come on to replace a largely ineffectual Cantona, and within a couple of minutes had played a long one-two with Tony Dorigo and scored the winner that sent the assembled Leeds fans wild.

After leaving Leeds he played for a number of lower division clubs and became manager at non-league Kettering, leading them back to the Conference at the first attempt. In 2002/03 he had to manage on a shoestring with the club up for sale. Despite the odd win relegation was inevitable from an early stage, and when it was finally confirmed the club decided to terminate his contract before the end of the season. In March 2004 he pitched up as the new manager of Bradford Park Avenue in the Unibond League and managed to steer them through the play-offs and into the new Conference North league. In 2004/05, a serious player shortage meant that he once again pulled on his boots for the team, and even managed to get on the scoresheet again.

Steve Tite says: Shutty is currently doing a great job (in his first season as a manager) at Kettering Town FC and having recently turned 40 he still looks classy on the pitch when he turns out.
