813 Jack Jenkins

665 Jack Jenkins

Connections with Brighton and Hove : Jenkins did not start his Football League career until he was 30, an age at which many players today are thinking of retiring. Yet this sturdily built defender inspired Brighton and Hove Albion in the Twenties with his confidence and coolness as a full back. After playing for several clubs in his native Wales, he joined Albion in 1922. In his first season, he played every game and the club conceded only 34 goals. He played eight times for Wales and received a gold medal when his country won the Home International championship. He was the most capped Albion player until Mark Lawrenson in the Eighties. Jenkins made 231 appearances for Albion and scored four goals before retiring. He died in 1946.
