Jabba's Comments

Keeper who let in 6 goals in his first game for the club - and although he never played for the first team again, he remained on the books for nearly 3 years. Went on to play for Accrington Stanley and York before dropping down to non-league football.

Richard Thornton says: My name is Richard Thornton and live in leeds 1 mile for elland road i am his great grandson.
