Lee Dicken
John says: -  A very young Lee! My team: Newcastle had Lee a few years after he was at Hull.  Lee never progressed further than reserve/second string but he was great to watch at Brough Park.  His method for coping with Newcastle's tight turns was to enter the bends faster than anyone else was doing and hang on.  Ivan Mauger used to do that in the 1960s but he usually came out of the bends in front.  There you go Lee someone has compared you to Ivan Mauger (well sort of).
