Chad, just read an article in the local rag about Robbie Wheeler, he is to do his first marathon in aid of St Lukes, the one thing that shocked me was that his age was given as 57, I thought he played for is in the late 1980's.Can you give me the stats, I recall him as very good forward.

Probably wrong with this one but I think I remember a Robbie Wheeler when I first started going to Witton in the mid to late 70's the only reason I remember is my Dad was mates or worked with his Dad (I think) and we sat next to him in the stand once.
The hardest part about moving on is learning not to look back!!

My Andy how time "appears" to fly as you get older ;D

Picko's spot on and if indeed it is the same Robbie Wheeler then my database entry for him reads:

DEBUT 20/12/75 v Ashton U.(a) FINALE 18/5/77 v Mossley(a)
APPEARANCES - League 42+3 Cup 18 TOTAL = 63
GOALS League 16 Cup 13 TOTAL = 29
FORMER CLUBS Congleton T.(2), Sandbach Ramblers, Winsford U.(£75)
LATER CLUBS Middlewich Ath., Hyde U., Congleton T.(13-5), Middlewich Ath

UPDATE
Looks like he is the same as I've located his date of birth as Autumn 1950
