Big Bob arrives at Vic
Billy Horner strengthened his striking options by signing bustling centre forward Bob Newton from Huddersfield. Newton would establish himself as a fans favourite in his five years at the Vic, though he will also be remembered for the car accident that cost teammate Dave Wiggett his life. Newton was later voted the club's Player of the 1980s.
