Footnotes

  • In March 1939, Jack Stamps made his debut, scoring twice against Charlton Athletic. Seven years later, he would repeat his performance against the same club at Wembley, scoring twice again to help Derby County lift the F.A. Cup. Stamps was a centre-forward signed from New Brighton scoring goals freely in the Third Division North. Born in the South Yorkshire mining village of Thrybergh in December 1918, he had begun his League club career in October 1937 with Mansfield Town. They surprisingly gave him away on a free transfer less than a year later, after he had made only one senior appearance for the Stags. Five goals in only 12 matches for New Brighton soon had scouts from the bigger clubs taking notice but it was Derby's Jobey who moved fastest, paying £1,500 to bring Stamps to the Baseball Ground in January 1939 with Stamps making his League bow against Charlton on March 18. He was transferred to Shrewsbury Town in December 1953, after 126 goals in 262 appearances for the Rams. He later played and managed Burton Albion before losing his sight. He fought bravely against cancer before his death, at Winshill, in November 1991.
