Dessie for me was the hardest pound for pound player have ever seen. But he was not a dirty player.

I also heard ge was a black belt and landlord in Moss Side, that says it all.

I have two memories of Dessie that stand out.

Firstly when he was with Leigh we played them at the end of the season needing a win for the league title. He had a about ten passes all daty that were easy that he dropped. In the last minute it was still close, Dessie got a terrible pass under his sticks. He picked it up off his ankles and went the length to score.

My second one is when we played Saints in a cup match. Dessie got the ball ands ran straight at their full back Phil Vievers. He ran straight through him road runner style and scored. Vievers was out on the floor and needed to be revived. He was brought back on.

Ten minutes later Dessie gets the ball again and does exactly the same. This time Vievers is carried off never to be seen again.

BTW great site
