An absolute pleasure to see him grace Derwent Park in the blue and white. A great player who never gave  less than 100%. Condolences to all his family and friends, so sad.

In his twilight years at Town, but still never seen any other winger get the better of him, it was great to see such a legend of Rugby League in Town colours, he played a big part in a truly magnificent team.

RIP Dessie.

I recall a play off game at Huddersfield in the Peter Walsh glory days of the 90s when Tony Kay fed Dessie a short pass on the halfway line and in the blink of an eye he was putting the ball down under the posts for a crucial try. I was sitting in the main stand and it happened right in front of me, but i never even saw that pass, so it says a lot about Tony Kay but even more about Dessie. Absolute legend.

I remember that, as soon as he got the ball he cut insude and touched down under the posts. Pure class

Remember that well , Tony Kay got 10 yards on him , and He could motor , but Dessie arrived alongside him on half way , switched the turbo on and He was gone .An absolute quality player who we were all as Town fans lucky to see . RIP Dessie .

Rochdale , Premiership semi final 1993 . They were in a higher league and had a good side . Thousands of us went and it was one of the great days away , Dessie scored twice , and his second try just showed how good he was . Look it up on YouTube , in and away and he was gone
