Bit-part midfielder in a Leeds side that was starting to fall
apart at the end of the 1970s. He won 2 caps while at Elland Road,
but didn't win a regular place and was probably grateful to get
away from Elland Road when he was sold in October 1981.
Apparently he shares his name with a boxer - who was world
bantamweight champion from 1980-84 and rated as the best
pound-for-pound fighter in the world at the time - and a film star
who played in numerous movies from the late 1940s to early 1960s.
Which might explain the next comment.
Maxine says: I belonged to his fan club in 1952. Wish I would
have saved everthing I had during those years. They would be
priceless now. It's difficult to find his albums. I was hoping the
fan club president from 1952 would contact me. Thank you.
Dave Bishop says: I went to Primary school with Jeff and in
later played football with him at senior school. We both
represented West London Boys. An interesting fact about Jeff is
that when he gained one of his two International caps for the
Republic of Ireland against the USA in 1979. Also playing in that
team was Tony Grealish (Luton,Man City, Brighton). Tony attended
senior school (Although some years older) with Jeff. So they went
back a long way. Do you know what he is doing now ??

Martin Wright says: Yes, I saw Jeff play during his time at
Mansfield Town. I am trying to put a book together about former
MTFC players, where they went,what they did later etc. From above I
can see Jeffs playing career ended in 91 at Cardiff. Did he move
into non league or coaching etc. Any info you have after 91 would
