I watched Widnes from around 1974 to early 80's, stopped watching around 80 or 81, then didn't go again until 1995. So i'm going from a vague memory, and only including players i actually saw.


1) Mick Burke
2) Stuart Wright
3) Mal Aspey
4) Mick George
5) John Basnett
6) Eric Hughes
7) Reg Bowden
8) Jim Mills
9) Keith Elwell
10) Glynn Shaw
11) Alan Dearden
12) Mick Adams
13) Doug Laughton

I may do one featuring only Players from 1995 onwards later................


Widnes - Super League's newest Club, and Cheshire's Original Glamour Club. Watch out Warrington, we're back !

It is interesting that most people have not selected current players in their teams. Is the reason simply that we haven't seen their full career pan out yet, or that players used to be better, or is it though nostalgic glasses where everything seemed better?


Most of the players in my current team haven't played long enough with the club to prove how good they are. Also this team has not really won anything , whereas the majority of the players listed won many competitions thus proving that they were the best at that time.

Several of our current team could possibly make it. Ben Galea has a chance, so do Mick Vella and Joel Clinton. Alongside Jake Webster as we have been weak in the centres with the exception of Prohmy who was a total legend.

Kylie Leuleuai would have to be in my Leeds side of the past 10 years and I always loved watching Brad Godden play.

Surely there's a logic to that though - if you're going to have overseas players then shouldn't they be among your better ones ?

I'm struggling, mainly cos in the near 40 years I've been watching Wires, I've seen many great players in all positions, even though the trophy cabinet doesn't really back up that statement.
For example.
Scrum half.
Parry Gordon, Andy Gregory, even Alfie Langer, 3 great players, that's if I put Briers stand off, ahead of Woods, Blake, Kelly, Bishop (oh, he seems to have left again...) Murphy or Shelford.
Full back: Whitehead, Hesford (a real rock at the back, and 2 points every kick), the attacking flair of Johnson.
Give me another day to mull it over......

Edited by goldcard, 12 July 2010 - 09:20 PM.

Wires record breaking 10 match run: L 16-17 ; L 34-36 ; L 24-44 ; L 20-38 ; L 8-46; L 14-26 ; L 20-40 ; L 22-48 ; L 14-20 ; L 8-60. Thanks Jimmy.The Glamour Club. Apparently.
Captain Morgan Trophy Holders.(I still think we have the British Coal 9's trophy hidden somewhere, too...)
Ooooh, the Challenge Cup!!! Thank you Tony.....

Yes there is logic in that, but NE spouts on about home grown this home grown that, i for one just think its laughable.

maybe i am on my own, but i have read plenty of his dribble.
