Jabba's Comments

A key player in Wilko's push to get out of Division 2, Davison came to Leeds with a great goalscoring reputation at Derby, and he didn't disappoint. With Rod Wallace signed up to partner Lee Chapman, Davison found himself in the reserves or on the bench, and after a couple of loan spells he moved on to Leicester. His return of 36 goals in 110 appearances was a good one, and his work-rate ensured his popularity. He subsequently had a spell managing Guiseley before resigning in October 2000.

Mike Haines says: I taught Bobby at Brinkbur. Comp in South Shield..he was also a member of the schol team I 'coached. Bobby was lethal against defenders..he'd approach them directly, slow down for a brief moment..jiggle his hips..and then accelerate at lightning speed..leaving the hapless defender wondering which way Bobby had gone...I last saw Bobby in a pub in South Shields..he was then playing sunday league football..I encouraged him to go for a trial.(I think he had Hartlepool in mind)..and the rest, they say, is history...Wonder what he's doing now?

Brian says: I worked with young Bob for a couple of years when he was promoting PC and PS2 games for Midas, who were sponsors of Sheff Utd. He even cam to our pub to present the annual football awards.

Indy says: Bobby Davison is coachin me at Bradford City at the moment, he's a quality coach!!!!

Jem Hinds says: as a derby fan...bobby davison was and still is a legend.

johnny lord says: top fella was bobby.....good player...always gave 100% for the whites only bad thing....his suits...awful....really awful

Anon says: i knew him as a youngster, he used to play with kevin tron, derek dearden & phil brown(ex bolton player).
