Jabba's Comments

Popular goal-scoring inside forward who gave Leeds five good years of service in the mid-1920s. He started his career with West London Old Boys, moving on to Ton Pentre before joining the senior ranks at Clapton Orient. Scored a hat-trick on his home debut for Leeds, and was to score another one on Christmas Day 1924. He returned to Clapton Orient on leaving Leeds, but at the age of 30 he was heading towards retirement although he did keep playing League football for a further 4 years after leaving Leeds and playing on with Bath City at the age of 35 after leaving Swindon.

Roger Whipp says: i! Just surfed into your site after doing a search on my surname Whipp. My dad always told me that my Great Uncle Percy was a good footballer who had played for the Orient and other clubs. Although my dad is no longer alive I shall make some enquires & search for any photos. I believe he also played a few games for Arsenal.
