Durham & Northumberland Three / Re: DN3 dream team, fullback vote
« Last post by Neil Roseberry on March 29, 2020, 07:53:03 PM »
I'll go with the majority and give young Jarrovian Johnny Allen my vote. Tackles like a demon and likes to launch a counter-attack from deep. Good pace and combines well with his winger and outside centre. I agree he is one to watch out for in years to come. I'd like to think he'll stay at Luke's Lane and they get a few more similarly talented lads through their cracking youth section.

Special mention deserved for Seaham full back Conor Jones who is a tremendous goal kicker. He got 14 out of 15 conversions in awful windy conditions down at Richmond earlier this season. Can also play anywhere across the backline.

I'm going to be biased and vote for a Prudhoe player. Danny Whiley, often plays in the centres, but preferred role is full back. Good under the ball, loves a gap, quick turn of pace and has a few tries under his belt this season.

Johnny Allen is a cracking player. Jarrow should hang on to him as long as possible because he has the potential to go up a league or two once he's had another couple years of senior rugby. Him and the young winger were stand out players.

Very biased, but Johnny Allen, Jarrow deserves the nod.

First year in senior rugby and massive potential. Pure heart in tackling.

There’s a load of good fullbacks in this leauge but the one I remember most was young Jarrow lad unbelievable tackler never gives up massive heart. For that I think he deserves the vote

Votes for Fullback please
1. We all Have “ONE” vote for a player in that position only.
2. Give a small brief of why?
3. Votes will be counted after 24hrs and locked.
4. If votes are tied “yours truley” will cast the deciding vote. (based on people’s briefs)

We will go through positions starting from loose head down to fullback. Then select a dream team based on most votes for that player. I will start a new thread after each selection is made.

1. loose head, Tech (Martyn Howard)
2. Hooker, Seaham (Connor Drinkwater)
3. Tight head, Houghton (Matt Marchant)
4. Secondrow, Ayecliffe (Luke Harty)
5. Secondrow, Redcar (Neil Young)
6. Blindside, Houghton (Newton Turton)
7. Openside, Seaham (Sean Macallum)
8. no8, P+S (Yannick debil)
9. Scrum half, Seaham (Brad Green)
10 flyhalf, Seaham (Johnny Foster)
11 winger, Seaham (Glen Hardie)
12. Inside centre, Wallsend (Josh Leighton)
13. Outside centre, Redcar (Josh Dixon)
14. Winger, Ayecliffe (James Thacker)

Would imagine it was stopped for the usual reasons no money in it for the big clubs. Usually why things that fans enjoy are stopped.

I like to keep my name a secret, but started my long career at William Turners Grammar School(later Saltscar), joining sunny Redcar as a youngster, before moving south to London and playing for the BBC and then Wembley LM. Spent two years at Tetbury in Gloucestershire.

Moved back north and joined Westoe, where I played, managed, coached and committee'd. Spent a season at Gateshead Fell and a season as player-coach for Jarrovians, where I'm currently back helping with the coaching.

Also scored a few caps for England Fire Service and Fire Service Barbarians along the way (last one at the ripe old age of 42 - They really were short that week)

Finally forced into retirement at 46 as work were starting to fret about the injuries.
