Jabba's Comments

Pacy winger who was a regular in the Leeds side in the late 1950s. Jack Taylor let him leave the club in 1960, and he went from strength to strength, winning his only England cap in 1963 while at Wolves. He had a spell playing down under, before retiring from the game to run a pub in Leeds. He briefly came out of retirement to play for non-league Bath City in 1971. Chris died in 2003.

Chris Crowe says: My name is also Chris Crowe

Anon says: My hero! The first Wolves player whose name I knew - when we played football in the playground, I was always Chris Crowe. RIP.

Brian Macnamara says: If this is the Chris Crowe that I'm thinking about did he not go to school in Edinburgh? I remember him when I was at St. John's primary in Portobello.

Anon says: I remember seeing Chris Crowe play for Nottingham Forest. He was transfer listed by them and responded by scoring a hattrick in his next game. But the manager still kept him on the list.

Fredward Copernicus says: Chris was a great guy. I remember seeing Chris play for Nottingham Forest. HE was a great player. I can't believe he has passed away.
