Eddie Gormley

Joining the club on a free transfer in July 1990 from Tottenham Hotspur, the Irish midfielder went on to make 128 appearances and scored 17 goals during three years in South Yorkshire.

Eddie was an all action, box to box midfielder with the ability to drag his team back into a game. He won the player of the year award in 1992 and 1993 and was affectionately known as ‘Steady Eddie’ as the fans pleaded with him to go steady in the middle of the park, a tireless runner with a creative flair and eye for goal from long range he was a big hit with the fans until his departure, deciding to play in his native Ireland, where he enjoyed a suitably successful career.  During his time in South Yorkshire he made 128 apps, and scored 17 goals.
