Captain Mardon, International?
Steve Bull is a merchant who specialises in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. He wears the headgear one would associate with this trade. He spent years in the first team of a Staffordshire-based club. And he is not a very nice man.

Scored for Wales against the then World champions, England, in the 1970 Home Championships.

Earnshaw for the goal celebrations.

Andy Johnson for the commitment.

Koumas for the talent.

Graham Williams. Hard as nails full back and great captain who led us to three cup finals and two trophies.

Outstanding.
Born Baggie. Die disheartened.

It's highly likely the poor bloke was in the early stages of cancer.. He was absolutely written off when he plucked up the courage to see a doctor.

A miracle he is alive.

Koumas without a shadow of a doubt .

Not a great but anyone remember Ian Edwardes,

I'll stand correcting on this but I think he holds record for most goals in an international whilst an albion player. (memory says 6 against cyprus)

have now checked wiki, he sored 4 against malta, whist playing for chester, this alzheimer thingee is rubbish innit !!
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Although I never had the pleasure of watching him play live, for me the stand out candidate for best Welsh player to play for WBA has to be Graham Williams.

Koumas was a potentially mercurial talent, but he did not consistently reach the heights that he either could or should have attained.

To my mind therefore, in terms of consistency and solid performances over a number of years, the title belongs to former FA Cup lifting Captain Graham Williams.

By a considerable country mile.

I remember watching him in a reserve game at the Hawthorns, forget who it was against now, he was stood on the half way line while the opposition goalkeeper took a goal-kick, it came at him like a rocket and he headed it straight back from the half way line and scored, unbelievable

Also an international left back, Stuart Williams was possibly better. Later on he also served as head coach under Alan Ashman. Despite being a heavy smoker he was very quick and occasionally played as a forward

Stuart or Graham Williams - couldn't separate them then, and won't separate them now.
Remember the past - learn from it

Goalkeeper Tony Millington was quite brilliant when he first came into the team but faded after a couple of seasons.

For his all round play, superbly timed tackling and a wonderful team man Stuart Williams for me.
