Jackie Crawford

Clubs played for: Palmers' Works F.C, Royal Navy, Jarrow Town F.C, Hull City, Chelsea, QPR (1920-1937)

Born: 1896

Birthplace: Jarrow

Position: Outside-left/Outside-right

Biography: Joined from Hull City in 1923 for a fee of £3,000. Was signed as a right winger but was soon asked to switch to the left to make room for Alex Jackson. He went onto produce some outstanding displays and appeared in an all-star front line which included Hughie Gallacher, Alex Cheyne and Andy Wilson. An eternal optimist, Crawford was highly influential in the dressing. It was a surprise that he did not win more than his one cap for England. This was gained in a defeat against Scotland in 1931. Coached QPR until 1939 and worked in a factory during the WW2. After the war he worked for Ford's in Dagenham until the 1960's. Died in September 1975, the day after his 79th birthday.
