Quoted from Manchester Mariner
Didn't we enter Murray Jones for the 'Rumbelows sprint challenge' in the early 90's? English Footballs quest to find the quickest player of the day. I vaguely remember him on Saint and Greavsie coming last.


Ha ha, yeah I remember that. Has he finished the race yet ? ☺

I'm sure I've read in someone's autobiography (possibly Macca's) that Jones was only in it because our players with pace at the time, Mark Smith and John McDermott, both had slight groin strains and Buckley didn't want to risk them.

Best shout I've seen so far is Gary Cohen.  Reddy and Boulding were quick but watch Gary Cohen's goal away at Cheltenham in the 2005/06 season.  He gave the defender about three days head-start and still did him with ease over a relatively short distance, most impressive was that he looked like had another couple of gears in him to go.

Reddy's strength was that he could run with the ball at pace and the aforementioned strength which made him a rare threat.  His goal against Rochdale in that 05/06 season where the defender, possibly Tony Gallimore, tries to wipe him out only to get spun around in a daze himself is a stark reminder of how good he was and just what could have been for him and his career.  Boulding, on the other hand, was a bit more kick and rush.  He improved beyond belief from the player that we first signed but he had lost a yard of pace in his second spell, not sure if that was down to injuries or a consequence on focusing more on his technical game.

A player I've not seen mentioned is Toto.  Not sure over a sustained distance but over 5-10 yards he was rapid and saved both the team and himself with his recovery runs on a fair few occasions.

Andy Taylor - blistering pace but lacked any strength to back it up.  David Soames was another young striker who could leave them for dust.

I seem to recall that Danish fella Neilson? Being pretty quick but never really got to see him over a season. Probably Reddy from what I can recall in a sprint across the length of the pitch. He'd be behind the defence and onside but he was fast enough to outrun them to the ball.
