Tom JENKINS

Jenkins was bought from Southampton on 1st November 1972, for a then club record of 50,000. He was signed to replace the irreplacable - the legendary Don Rogers. Within days of signing, the man who signed him, Dave Mackay, resigned to join Nottingham Forest.

He made his debut on 11th November, the Town drawing 1-1 at home to Huddersfield. He didn't really feature for most of that season, making just fourteen full and two substitute appearances. The following season was more productive for Jenkins, making 36 appearances, but the Town were relegated to Division Three.

Jenkins remained at the club for two more seasons. Overall, in his four years at the Town, Jenkins struggled to hold down a regular first-team place - despite being described by Danny Williams as the most skilful player at the club. He left the club in 1976 to play in America for the Seattle Sounders.
