On This Day

December 5th
1999
RIP to the Flying Dustman
Local boy Leo Harden passed away on this day in 1999. A popular figure on the terraces thanks to his turn of pace and his eye for goal, Leo was never a full time pro, and earned his nickname thanks to his other job as a binman. His 180 games were spread over ten seasons of irregular first team duty and he weighed in with over 50 goals in all competitions.
