Jabba's Comments

Young midfielder who was in the year below me at school (Lawnswood in Leeds) - not that I ever saw him play of course. He came into the Leeds side in the depths of the Division 2 slump and never really established himself, and he was sold to Chesterfield around deadline day in 1988.

Andy Jones says: I had the pleasure of being a good friend of Nigel at Lawnswood School. We were always having a laugh and distracting everyone! I think Nigel's thoughts throughout school were just on football and playing at Leeds Utd. I can remember him scoring a great goal for school one time. He hit the ball that hard from 18 yards it nearly broke the net! We always used to mix with the likes of Errol Johnson, Tony Butt, Alan McKenna. Errol and Tony ended up playing professional rugby league. We all got on together at school and we all loved playing sport. I think this is why we didn't do too well in the class. From leaving school, i have only seen Nigel once. It was a few years ago now (approx. 8yrs) and i saw him all suited up in the Myrtle Pub in Meanwood. He was getting married. I spoke to him briefly and wished him all the best. So, if you ever see 'Mr McCredie's Pet' (the sports teacher-who i think is still at Lawnswood)give Nigel my regards.....Andy Jones (Lawnswood High School 1980-1984).

Dave Smith says: I am Nigel's boss at Royal Mail in Leeds 6, he is currently a Postman delivering the nations mail in the woodhouse area of the city.
