Jabba's Comments

Ken Chisholm spent a season with Leeds just after the war, and moved with Leeds heading downhill, took a step up that resulted in him appearing - on the losing side - at Wembley in the 1949 FA Cup Final. He also played in the USA for the LA Kickers. Unfortunately, he is probably best known for being involved in the scandal surrounding illegal payments to players at Sunderland in the 1950s. After initially refusing to answer questions, he finally admitted receiving illegal payments and was duly punished.

Wes Chisholm says: I am kens son and would like to correct a couple of things. His position was inside left, and he got capped once for Scotland. My dad wrote a book which was never published and he talks about a lot of backhanders and match fixing that went on in those days. Jabba says: according to my records, he received a "Scottish Victory" cap in 1945 - but that's not classed as a full international cap and he is not listed in Rothmans as receiving any Scottish representative honours.
