60s. A midfield player with a surname that sounded somewhat like a part of your head, he was born where a historic march started. His first professional club was Middlesbrough, who he helped to a promotion, but he had moved south to a wasp’s nest before the sixties were out. Another promotion and run to the FA Cup Semi Final followed before he spent a season further south at the Hoe. Next, he went up the junction in Cheshire for five years, before coming over all Shakey – he ended his playing career Stateside at a stockade. Who am I describing?

80s. Tonyrefail born, this defender played hundreds of games for another side that plays in blue and white, but his time at Cardiff was a brief and unhappy interlude in an otherwise decent career, He barely made it into double figures in games played for us, but one of them came in a defeat at Middlesbrough.
