Nelly joined WIFC back in 1998, and quickly personified all that is good about WIFC as though he may not be the most skilful player, he always gives his best and was a much respected member of the full squad. In honour of this, Nelly was inducted to the WIFC hall of fame in 2007. Nelly will always be remembered for the “special haircut” he once had performed on his nether regions, falling over drunk in the reception at the Village in Leeds and can also be relied upon to turn up wearing the latest in hard clothes, from Burberry and Henri Lloyd to Top Man and George at ASDA.
