149 Robbie Whellans
Position : Forward
Played : 1989-90
Played : 11
Goals : 1
Robbie was signed on a free from Bradford but his only League experience was with Hartlepool on loan where he made 11 appearances in 1987-88 scoring one goal which was actually against Dale in a 2-0 win.
The diminutive striker couldn't get ahead of Walling and Stonehouse and never really looked the part in his mainly substitute appearances. It was a different story when he moved into non-league football in Yorkshire regularly notching 20+ goals a season for Farsley Celtic and Harrogate Town.
He was still playing as recently as 2005 for Harrogate Railway Athletic.
