England Youth international Rodney was a skilful inside forward who played all the remaining games of the season on his arrival at Millmoor.
Then he missed only a handful of games the following season and he was a regular choice again in 1972/73 which wasn't a good one for the club as they went down to Division Four.
If there was a weakness in Rod's play it was perhaps the fact that he didn't score as many goals as he would have liked to have done.
1970/71: League apps 24 goal 1

A very happy 29th birthday on friday to David Worrell. Heres hoping he celebrates with a win on Saturday.
And a couple of goals from him would be good!!!!
Oh and nice to read about Rod Johnson too - thanks Zip!
David Worrell doesn't look 29 does he!! He's still one of my favourites, happy birthday young man!
I was gonna do Mark Dempsey cos he was one of my favourites at the time, but i thought i'd better do Rod or you would've got monk on with me
