Jeffrey carried about as much goal threat as a fridge-freezer. Still, a tad more than we've got now, nonetheless.

As it happens, Wikipedia has him down as scoring twice in 47 appearances. I remember, strangely vividly, him scoring in a 3-1 defeat in the cup on a Tuesday night against Wycombe who were then two divisions below us.

Can anyone recall who the other one was against? I’m generally pretty good with pointless bits of trivia like this, but for the life of me I can’t.

First thing that comes to mind for me is a 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace. We were 2-0 up and ended up being pegged back. I reckon Jeffrey scored that night (think it was a night game).
Probably completely wrong.

I think he scored in a defeat to Gillingham on a Tuesday night. The wiki total won't include that cup game though as they only ever seem to show league goals.

Edit: https://www.soccerbase.com/players/player.sd?player_id=3892

I was talking nonsense, he never scored against Gillingham. Tommy was spot on with that Palace game. The other league goal was v Portsmouth in the Prosinecki game.

Fairly sure we were 2-0 down against Palace when Jeffrey pulled  one back. Either Donovan or Willems with a late equaliser

Some good work there chaps, it was indeed versus Pompey during our mini-run to the top of Division One:

http://www.espn.in/football/report?gameId=18440

Funny, as I remember clearly listening to that match over a dodgy dial-up connection in a Jamaican hotel but had absolutely no recollection of Jeffrey scoring that day.

Only a few days later we beat Barnsley on the same day as England smashed Germany 5-1 to go top of the league. Fleeting as it was, it’s amazing we did it at all with a front line of Jeffrey and Jonny Rowan.

Ah yes, Donovan scrambled in after Willems' free kick was saved.

Thought Jeavans & Rogan were our front two at the start of that season but my memory is not what it was 😄
