Jabba's Comments

John Daniels made many appearances for Leeds during World War 2, but only took the field once during peacetime. I'm not sure if the result of that game - a 1-7 defeat at Stamford Bridge - had anything to do with his lack of appearances, but he did well enough for Stockport, albeit at a slightly lower level.

Mike Daniels says: I saw my Dad play many times during the 40's He also played for Lincoln City. I have a medal of his that reads "Champions M/C North End 32-33 J Daniels". After his soccer career he went to Loughboro College and then to St John's School for the Deaf in Boston Spa. He was instrumental in bringing soccer to the school and setting up the rules of the game to play to a flag as well as the whistle. I recall St John's won the area trophy several times. My Dad was a great proponent of youth and worked with them both in the UK and Canada. Somewhere we have family albums of great soccer pictures of the era. He always taught me to be the very best you can be. Today I mentor young folks too in the Air Cadet Movement in Canada. It really was nice to see my dad's name in your profiles.

Peter Daniels (Jack's son) says: I remember when i was about 4 or 5 and dad took me to Elland road to watch a match, things are vague, but have lots of newspaper clippings of Dad playing at various clubs, Mum and dad passed on some time ago but all my kids have the black and white photoes of their Grandfather playing soccer, its nice to see this, cheers.

Alex Duguid says: During the 50's I was at St John School for the Deaf at Boston Spa, and remember John Daniels as he was an inspiration to us. He taught us to played football at both junior and senior to a level that we were a good football team and won many trophy under him.

Peter Daniels says: Hello. I have just finished giving all the children/Grandchildren copies of dad playing soccer, trying to keep his memory alive within the family. Thanks Again

Rich Daniels says: I never met my Grandfather. I wish I had. I can see him through my Father (Mike Daniels)...............If I turn out half as good as these 2 gents I'll do fine

Mike Daniels says: Jack Daniels also played for Lincoln City not sure of the dates, but in was after Leeds United he retired from soccer in 1946 due to a knee injury...Jack was born in Manchester Oct 6 1918. Sorry about getting the dates mixed died in 1970 at the age of I guess the DOB is 1914..I have a picture of Leeds United circa 1934..if you give me an address I will scan it and send it to you
