Watson, Gordon Had the absolute pleasure of witnessing 'Flash' play for my beloved Hartlepool United, it was a master stroke from (our then), manager Chris Turner to sign him, and boy what a player he was! Used to love hearing him bait whichever poor sod was tasked in trying to mark him! One of the best I've ever seen to grace The Vic's turf. Hope he's doing well.
