Jabba's Comments

Jon Newsome came from Sheffield Wednesday in the same package that brought us David Wetherall, and for a while it looked like they could form the centreback partnership for the future. Newsome didn't play in many games in his first season at Elland Road, but he did score a crucial goal on that nerve-wracking Sunday morning at Bramall Lane that set us up to win the title when Man U went down to Liverpool in the afternoon.

The following season saw him frequently used in the right-back slot - a role that he was totally ill-suited for - and although he returned for another run at centreback towards the end of 1993-94, he was released in the summer and played for Norwich, Sheffield United and Bolton before an injury forced his retirement from the game in 2000.

In 2002 he has taken the first step into management, taking over at Dr Martens Western Division side Gresley Rovers: he has said he might occasionally play on but only in an emergency.
