at the moment it is david seeds i think he is awesome but i have heard so much bout dick huddart and from what i have red bout him and been told he was awesome and i think matty will become a homegrown talent in many years to come.

wot about Arnie walker? come to think of it there has been a lot of very talented local players. i.e. jimmy Dalton David light foot jon routledge Milton Huddart to name a few older players and there is definitely a lot of excellent young ones coming through now like calvert macavoy matty etc

Cottier was good at the end of his career ,Jimmy Dalton and Norman are another 2 that spring to mind
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

again depending on what you are looking for in your talent,
i reckon for attacking flair you would be hard struck to look past david seeds, or vincent gribbin in his heyday,

as a defensive talent there can't be many better local lads than gary hetherington
