Can anyone remember a player who played for Whitehaven in the 70's his surname was either Neil, or it may have been his Christian name. He worked for marchon at the caustic acid  station just behind corkickle train station, fill the tankers I use to drive from there and take up to marchon.
Also their was a guy who came to try his luck from American football, he made a few outings for haven, he could kick a ball full length of the field, but was not interested in running with the ball or tackling, What the hell was his name too?

If it's a girl they're naming her Sigourney after an actress, if it's a boy the 're naming him Rodney after Dave
