TC is the obvious choice,but two home grown kids Ticker Taylor and Mark Smith were superb for us that season,Smith in particular,he grew in stature as the club progressed so did he,solid and dependable,bloody good CB

Brian Hornsby was a hero of mine at the time too. Scored a cracking volley against Toytown at Millmoor but not sure if was 78/79 season or 79/80.

Mark Smith's dad and brother still have season tickets just in front of us in the north stand.

For the first time  in 10 years all the players mentioned in that side were heroes even if it was Division 3. JC did such a great job when recruiting although I know some originally came to the club under Len "the Unlucky" Ashurst's tenure.
