I’ll leave the selection of 6 by others with better knowledge than me but I can’t believe that Nigel Vaughan is not on there.

Certainly agree with the first two. Too young to remember much of second two.

A name not mentioned - Howard Goddard...

Len Hill was a real stalwart, and we always played better with him in the team. Goddard and Woods had a v. good partnership going in the late 70s for sure, but I could only name two from that era of the 60s and 70s.
