Jabba's Comments

An experienced lower-division fullback who followed Billy Bremner from Doncaster to Leeds, Caswell's time at Leeds was spent almost entirely on the treatment table. He had a brief spell on loan at Wolves but was forced to retire from the professional game in 1988.

Paul Cooper says: Admittedly, this is not much of a comment, but I remember Caswell as a Walsall player in the early eighties, in the days of the old fellows Park ground. My mate met him in a pub once, and he was sufficiently impressed by the guy to name - wait for it - his new kitten Caswell. Incidentally, the cat got run over a few years later exhibiting the same slight lack of pace...

Richard Walker says: He was bloody rubbish.

Darren Thompson says: he looks like a rat and i thought he was i twat when i worked with him

Ross Stephens says: its ross stephens caz was a top bloke at shrewsbury and developed me as a player and what a player he use to be and i was sad to see him go hopefully see him again soon

Dennis Rolls says: I saw Caswell play many times for Walsall and while he was never to play for England he was well respected. Whoever Darren Thompson is he is just the sort of guy you like to have working with you! He is obviously visually and mentally impaired. Good o ya Brian

Dennis Rolls says: Walsall Historian Geoff Allman calls him Walsall's greatest ever utility player. Key figure in Walsall's Milk Cup run of the early 80's. Always looked like he could have played at a higher level, but only got his chance very late in his career when he suffered injury.
