NB Club records are incomplete for many years, especially between 1963 and 1990 and the figures above include estimated figures where full teams do not appear in press reports. They may therefore have been over-estimated but are the best that can be achieved. Only substitute appearances referred to in press reports for the period between 1966 and 1990 have been included and these figures will, of necessity, be less than those actually made, so totals may have to be adjusted upwards should further information come to light.

APPEARANCES IN A SEASON
Andy Johnston played in all 58 games in 1986/87
