Remember him joining, never remember him playing and couldn't even tell you what he looked like, and I've not missed a home game since 2003!

Siddall was one of our loan keepers of the 80s and played a handful of games when Nixon fell out of favour. Bobby Mimms and Mike Stowell also had loan spells in the late 80s. I would view Coops as a successful signing, came in as experienced backup to Dibble, if Margetson had been drafted in we may not have gone up in 88/9 ...

My and my brother watched this clip over and over again laughing and then went and renacted "Siddalls" in the garden...few months later he was playing for us!!

Cross had a decent scoring record during his one season with us but didnt seem to play at the end of the season. Unsure if he was injured but he may have got a goal or 2 to keep us up. Had big shoes to fill being the cut price replacement for Francis when he was already at the veteran stage of his career.

his only game second time round was a friendly at Oldham in 2001 which was played 6 or 7 games into the season

One of my early heroes was Vic Gomersall. I thought he had a cool name, but even in the pre-Mercer days, when we were piss poor, he was never a regular.

Other fond memories from those days - Cliff Sear, Dave Bacuzzi, Matt Gray, and the legend that was Roy Gratrix.
