Carl Harris, sportsman with a connection to Wales (Neath)
Carl HarrisFootball (Soccer) player. Played for Leeds.
Connection: Born and raised in Briton Ferry, near Neath.
Won 24 caps in 1970's and 1980's. Went on to manage.
Carl played for Rochdale towards the end of his Football League career. His skills were a pleasure to watch and were a breath of fresh air in a team which to some extent was struggling.
On one occasion (against Cardiff City, no less!) he received the ball in his own half, dribbled past at least 6 players and scored.
We were sorry when he left.
