Mobley quickly impressed as a strong centre half and rapidly progressed from City’s Colts side to the first team. He was spotted by Sheffield Wednesday manager Vic Buckingham and signed for The Owls in September 1961. Sheffield Wednesday Mobley signed for Wednesday as an 18 year old, primarily as an understudy to Peter Swan who was then first choice Centre Half for England national side. Mobley’s chance to play in the first team probably came quicker than expected as Swan was banned in 1964 for his part in a match fixing scandal. He made his debut on 4 April 1964 in a 1-1 away draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers. He was an ever present in the following 1964-65 season, playing 44 games in all as Wednesday finished eighth in the league. Mobley was called up to the England squad in late 1965 but injury problems meant he had to drop out and he never got another chance. That injury was the first of two that season, the other came in the FA Cup semi final against Chelsea, a match Wednesday won 2-0 at Villa Park to reach the final. Mobley was injured after just 30 minutes, at that time substitutes were not allowed and Mobley courageously played the entire match in his injured state, having a hand in Graham Pugh‘s clinching goal. The injury meant that he missed the final against Everton being replaced by a young Sam Ellis. An injury hit 1966-67 season was followed by two season where Mobley was ever present and injury free. He was transferred to Queens Park Rangers in October 1969 for a fee of £55,000 after playing 187 league games for Wednesday (210 including cup games) and scoring eight goals.[2][3] Queens Park Rangers Mobley’s time with Q.P.R. was injury plagued, he played only 25 games in two years before giving up the game on medical advice. Q.P.R. maintained that Mobley had been injured before they signed him and they took Sheffield Wednesday to court in February 1973 to claim compensation.[4] References ^ Post War English & Scottish Football League A - Z Player's Database.
