Description

Burnley born Jerry Jackson holds a somewhat unusual claim to footballing fame. Originally on the books of his hometown club, Burnley, in 1900-01, he never appeared for their first team and went into coaching. As trainer of Second Division Sheffield Wednesday after the First World War, due to a player injury crisis he was pressed into action on 27th August 1923, by now already 46 years old and in so doing becoming by some 6 years the oldest ever player to play for The Owls. He lasted 35 minutes playing on the wing in a 2-0 defeat at Port Vale. He later trained Reading and was their trainer when they won the Third Division (South) Championship in 1925-26.
