Dean "Moonface" Whitehead, as he was known at Stoke.
A fine role-model for the modern-day footballer. Started in the lower leagues, worked hard, captained clubs, got a couple of promotions to the Prem under his belt and played a fair amount in the top-tier too. And stuck with the same Mrs from the age of 18, without (to my knowledge) being led astray like many other playboys in the game.
Good to see him going in to coaching, top guy. Proud to call him a product of the Yellow youth system.
Some of that interpassing with Chris Hackett down the right side towards the East Stand will stay in the memory. Both had good pace.....granted at a lower level, but great all the same. The career for a Football League player seems to get shorter and shorter.....all about fitness levels.
