46 John Humphreys
Position : Winger
Played : 1983-4 (on loan from Oldham Athletic)
Appearances : 6
Goals : 0
Accompanying Paul Heaton from Oldham was this 19 year old who'd come through the ranks and made 13 appearances in their first team.
Unfortunately I'd rate John as second only to Matt Dickins as our worst ever loan signing. Just as he was a keeper who couldn't stop a shot, John was a winger who couldn't beat anybody.
Oldham freed him at the end of the season and he moved on to Horwich RMI.
