Birthdays

Charles Reddock (1901); 9 appearances, 0 goals

The arrival of Harry Curtis at Griffin Park in the summer of 1926 was quickly followed by Scottish half-back Reddock, who had worked with Curtis at his former club Gillingham. Despite their previous relationship, Reddock played just six games during his first season and three during the 1928/29 campaign before finishing his career with Thames Association.

Tony Craig (1985); 129 appearances, 0 goals

Tony swapped South East for West London in the summer of 2012, arriving from Millwall. His performances at the heart of our defence instantly made him a popular figure. He made 55 appearances as we reached the League One Play-Off final during his first season at Griffin Park and a further 50 the year after, the majority as captain, as we ended a 21-year wait for promotion back to the second tier.  Those performances earned him the Players’ Player of the Year award.
