Another value free transfer first time round Mike Matthews

Oh and worst - Peter Butler on every conceivable scoring criteria!

Agreed Chris Nicholls, would personally add, Burgin, Alex Smith, Genoe, Waddle, Kennedy, Galloway, Holden, Norris, Longhurst, Davidson, (then Martin, Thackery, Bradshaw, Stoneman, Jackson, Kilcline, Hulme, Paterson, Brown, Brooks, Horsfield & Philliskirk bit of a dream team)

In my opinion, based on the state of the club at the time and his significance, was Kieran O'Regan. A quality player, peanuts for wages, and really the catalyst for the promotion of 1997-98.

 

great shout

The two Fred’s who were England internationals.

Pentland and Hill. 

Fred Kemp probably thought he was a big signing, but nowhere near Freddie Hill.

Im too young to have seen Pentland but that looks a big signing.
