Totally agree 

so many good players have graced the shay 

 it’s surprising we have not had more success than one league promotion in our 100 plus years

The late Eighties side sticks out Nick. Roche in goal, Phil Brown, Dave Robinson (although he was partial to breaking his collar bone on slides), Lee Richardson, Mick Galloway, Rick Holden, Wayne Allison etc.

When they were on form they were a pleasure to watch.

Great Idea Steve, but apart from all the obvious ones already named I cant think of any!!! Well, one name comes to mind because he was a friend. I'm convinced a local Elland lad turned out for us in the 80's. Defender called Chris Gradon??? Possibly only played one game!!! Dont think it worked out for him. Can anyone throw any light on this???

What a great era! I was only young so the players were like true 'stars' and even though we regularly struggled back then, I still remember these times fondly.

If I remember rightly the players sold from that squad went for over £1m. Just think what Holden, Galloway and Richardson would be worth now. 

Very happy days being a Shayman. We were always skint but with the help of the youth team coming through the and some astute signings we were a match for anyone in our league. The only team to beat Wolves home and away days it all.

I don't think anyone would be interested as they will be now in their 50's :-)

I think I remember attending a league game when Johnny Hough played in goal and possibly kept a clean sheet.

Going back a bit I believe George Holt was also from Southowram.

Craig Fleming was the brother. Others that come to mind are Michael Collins and who can forget Peter Butler. Lee Tuck didn't play much but went on to a career in Malaysia.
