Gary Childs1989/90-1997/98237 (29)29 goals

Gary Childs A small, flying winner who signed for Town from Birmingham 1989. Childs was a typical Buckley player in size, but more than made up for that with his no-nonsense style and gutsy teamwork. Childs was normally Towns' first choice winger, but he had to battle with Tommy Watson for the number 7 shirt, usually culminating in him making nearly 30 appearances a season.

Childs was released after the 1996/97 relegation season and is now coaches young children to play football (I sold a hamburger to him at a Football Tournament last year!) and is an analyser on BBC Radio Humberside.

Next Player: Jim Dobbin
