Archer, John When he was at Crewe his nickname was "Dan", which was the name of a leading character in the BBC Radio drama, The Archers. He had a ferocious right foot and scored some cracking goals direct from free-kicks. He was also quite a character and (I could be wrong here, I was only a nipper at the time) but I seem to remember he did what is very rare on a football field. He often played with a smile on his face.
