Jabba's Comments

Rob Bowman was another one of the first wave of players to come through Wilko's Youth setup at Leeds, but like many of the others he didn't continue his success at the top level. He played a handful of games in the Premier League - and even got a taste of European football in the 0-3 defeat at PSV in 1995.

With no progress possible at Leeds, he moved on to Rotherham and then to Carlisle before being released at the end of the 1999-2000 season and moving on to play for Bohemians in Ireland.

Mervyn Day says: Rob was the finest full-back in Carlisle's team - shame that Michael Knighton thought he knew better.

Maurice Perry says: Went to school with Rob "Yogger" Bowman, though I was a couple of years older. Always thought he'd 'make it' and quite saddened that he hasn't, as he was clearly a class above anything i'd seen when i was younger, especially when we were kicking around in the old Gilesgate V's Kelloe/Q Hill matches, in the scool yard.

Patrick O'Kane says: i'm positive i did ,did he make his debut against man utd in cantona's return to elland rd please let me no it's been bugging me for years. Jabba says: his first start was against Man U in February 1993, but his debut was againsy Wimbledon as a sub two days prior to that game.

Keith Holmes says: Saw him play in the 0-0 draw V Man U - hew handled Giggs very well. Surprised he didn't make it
