Carrying on from your votes for the best full back to wear a Huddersfield RLFC shirt, I'm now after your votes for the best 2 wingers you've ever seen at our club. All I need from you is 2 past/present wingers and the 2 most popular will go into the 'Hall of Fartown Fame'

Kebbie - a top quality signing by Murphy, scored some of the most memorable tries of my childhood as well as a few amazing try saving tackles.

McGillvary - may not have that many games under his belt yet, but is a real possibility for an England shirt in the future and I really enjoy watching him play.

Peter Cramp was my favourite. Strong and quick but skilful as well.

Ian Thomas was also good and had a great try scoring record but he played most of his time in the lower divisions so it is hard to determine how he would have been at the top level,

The best must surely be Lionel Cooper 333 appeareances and 420 tries

AA Rosenfeld 366 tries in 287 appearances and a RL legend.

From what I've seen

Peter Cramp, Big, good tackler, strong runner, clever footballing brain and could kick, if he'd have played for a big name club would have got international honours.

McGilvary, big, tough, strong runner who has everything going for him. If he can stay injury free and continue to improve even more he could become a International regular and a Fartown legend.

Never saw Cooper or Sosenfield play so can't comment on them, could have gone for Ken Senior, a great servant of the club, but not the greatest tackler in the world and was never my cup of tea.

It is hard to think with the amount of wingers that I have seen over the last 40 odd years. I think the stand out one for sheer pace has to be.:-

Kebbie

But I am struggling for a second between Peter Cramp, Ian Thomas, Ken Senior, and there is Andy Cheetham, do you remember the wonderful try he scored against Hull in the play offs.
So I will go for.:-

McGillvary

Others I have fond memories of are Ian Thomas who was a hero in a seriously struggling team, Hefin O'Hare who played with the heart of a lion and David Hodgson who knew how to cross the try line.
