Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Jack?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
I played along side Jack for the Oak Inn ((Maggies) pub he ran in the 80s with his wife Josey in Swallownest, Sheffield. Lovely man, not a good singer though.
I remember a hat trick v Derby county for Liverpool 3-2, I was about 13. I am 63 this year
I have no idea if Jack ever reads these posts, but as I'm not on Facebook, will give this a try.
Happy memories of student days in Sheffield where a bunch of us Uni lads shared a house in Southgrove Road with Jack and Sam Ellis. The landlady was "Maria" who had a somewhat "piercing" voice. Her somewhat downtrodden husband was Brian. There were amongst others: Goeff Cooper, Andy Lawrence, Stan Slaughter and me, Geoff Pring. If Jack wants to chat I can tell him what we all got up to. He can e-mail me as I am quite happy to get a reply, or phone me on 01872 501293.
Jack was known as jack ( in the box ) whitham when he played with S.W. sadly he was very injury prone and never played a full season, he could score goals though.
Always remember his hat trick against derby county shame he was injury prone
