Fourteen year career with Stoke from 1956 until an October 1970 transfer to Bury. Made over 400 league appearances for Stoke. One of the true greats of the game.

Local-lad who made 44 league appearances for Stoke before a January 1969 transfer to Blackpool where he became a regular. Moved on to Port Vale in 1977. Another local who played for Stoke from 1961 to 1976. Like many other Stoke players he finished his career with Port Vale. Yet another local who struggled for first-team appearances in a 7-year stint, making only 90 league appearances. Transferred to Shrewsbury in 1969 where he had more success.
