Jabba's Comments

Signed as a 21-year-old in 1929, Bob Danskin's misfortune was to be a centre-half - and Ernie Hart, Willis Edwards and Wilf Copping occupied the defensive/midfield line of the time. He moved on to Bradford, making over 500 appearances before staying with them as a coach. He died in autumn 1985.
