Gary Cohen.

According to the internet, his entire family sprinted for GB at various olympics so it's probably a no-brainer that he was quickest, despite others around that era being pretty nippy.

I think Reddy probably the fastest - I remember when he made his debut as a sub up at Darlo and he reached a ball before the keeper (who blocked the effort), when I thought it he'd never anywhere near it. Serious, serious pace as well as the strength to hold off defenders as well. Just a pity that his running style knackered his hips and he had to retire so early.

Boulding and Cohen also extremely nippy and Bore could really run - he just never seemed to have the confidence/wherewithal to try to skin the opposition defender. A real waste of ability there.

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.


I believe Macca was injured or ill on the day and Jones was thrown in as a replacement.

At last...McMenemy said in his autobiography that Brace was so quick "He could catch pigeons". Not sure he had Reddy's strength or skill but he could certainly move..


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

My money would go there too....him and Reddy together had to be the fastest strike force in the land at that time.
