Jabba's Comments

Roly Depear was signed from non-league Boston United - a tall and strong centre half - but only made 5 appearances for Major Frank Buckley's side. Probably the most significant thing about Depear's career with Leeds was his departure: he was used in a part-exchange deal with Newport that brought Harold Williams to Elland Road. Since Depear had only cost Leeds £500 and was valued at 16 times that amount a year later as part of the deal, he proved a very shrewd acquisition by the club.

Michael Depear says: I'm not sure but i think we could be related
