Jabba's Comments

A South African who came over on tour in the mid-1920s and stayed to become one of Liverpool's greatest ever players with an incredible haul of goals - 233 in his 258 league games. He had a brief spell with Aston Villa, but age hadn't caught up with him when he signed for Leeds in 1937 - his record of 5 goals in a game remains unequalled by any of the great Leeds strikers before or since.

He was a real all-round sportsman, turning out as a fast bowler in county cricket, and when he retired from the playing side of the game he had a spell in management with Port Vale before his untimely death at the age of 47 in Stoke.
