Jabba's Comments

Jack Kelly started his footballing career in his home village of Hetton-le-Hole before joining Burnley as an amateur. Having joined Leeds at the start of 1935, Kelly made the number 9 shirt his own the following year, but was soon displaced himself by Arthur Hydes, and after a season of Central League football with just the occasional first team game, he moved on to Birmingham. After a brief stint in the Midlands, he went to Bury just before the outbreak of war before retiring back home to Hetton.

James says: Jack died about 6 or 7 years ago age around 84. his wife Ann is still living in Hetton le hole where Jack returned to after playing football. ps. I pointed his chimney stack and he lived just around the corner
