Kerry Gibson played for Runcorn Highfield and he had one arm. I think he was an Australian.


Cheers, I knew someone somewhere had a one armed player. I'm sure boots n all did a piece on him back in the day.

They had to leave Blackpool after new ground regs, brought in following the Bradford City fire in 1985, condemned wooden stands. Springfield was best option but the pitch took a battering and Athletic served then six months notice to leave. They first went to Chorley then Altrincham before returning to Blackpool in 1992.

They ran Leeds (22-12) and Salford (12-10) close in cups, finished one place off promotion to Division 1 and almost reached the second division Premiership Final. So they performed pretty well despite most crowds sub 1,000.
