DAVID JEFFREY ANDREW GWYTHER

When he finally retired, Dave was just two short of 600 league appearances. A strong, all action centre forward, he was a handful for any defence and in his time at Millmoor he forged a great understanding and partnership with his fellow striker Trevor Phillips.
His goal tally might have been better but his all round team work and willingness to run all day helped to provide plenty of goals for those around him. He gained two caps at Wales under 23 level.
Good in the air, he possessed a particularly good shot in his left foot.
