Didn't a very young slim-jim ace touchline goalkicker M Burke start out for us on the wing?

Speaking of wingers, okay not up there in the pantheon, but Paul Woods (GRHIS) always entertained with his casually overwhelming scarcely-provoked violence.

Handcart-pushing rag-and-bone man, Widnes, the past.

Besides the two obvious ones, Wright and Offiah, who would be your choice ?
First 2 that come to mind for me are Devereux and Corey Thompson

Indeed Burke did, although at school (Cowley) he played as a stand-off I believe.

Paul Woods was a scary person in a time when there was a vibrant element of mindless violence in the game. To stand out like he did marks him as worthy of note.

Mick Burke played a few games at stand off for Widnes in his first season here.
