In all seriousness, the rise and fall of Peter Smith was a bit strange. Joined us from non-league. Player of the season in 94/95. Then he went downhill rapidly.

I do kind of miss the days in a way where such a bang average plodder like Andy Whing was a cult hero because of how shite the rest of the team was
