Trivia: First and last

Last week's teaser looked at players who appeared under Sir Alex Ferguson whose surnames start and end with the same letter.

For instance, retired midfield marvel Paul Scholes.

This week, we asked if you could name FIVE Reds who fit the same criteria but appeared for the club between the 1950s and when the current manager took over the reins in 1986?

We came up with Alan Gowling, Harry Gregg, Jimmy Rimmer, Maurice Setters and Nobby Stiles while, via our Talking Reds message board, 'I-love-Gloryhunters' forwarded Jimmy Nicholson and 'MarcRed' nominated Ian Donald. Thanks guys!

Please let us know if you can think of any more.
