125 Simon Copeland
Played : 1988-89
Goals : 0
Simon was one of Danny Bergara's close season signings from Sheffield United reserves. He had never played in the League before and possibly that's the way it should have stayed. Simon was a tall lad with a rigid stance and a fierce shot which rattled the crossbar from 35 yards in a Manx Cup game at Bolton. Unfortunately he had no positional sense at all and often went missing when needed. He was also a regular in the referee's notebook for mistimed tackles. Terry Dolan got rid of him at the first opportunity.
He moved on to Gainsborough Trinity and later played for Alfreton Town.
