Rodney Alan FERN

Capable of the sublime or the ridiculous, quite often in the same game, Rodney was a playmaking inside forward who joined Leicester in 1966 eventually winning a regular place and finishing top scorer for the Foxes in 1969/70. A superb display at Luton in a 3-1 Leicester win over Easter 1971 was remembered by all at Kenilworth Road leading to a £45,000 transfer a little over a year later.
Rodney did not enjoy the best of times at Luton and was glad to accept a cut price move to Chesterfield in 1975 where he netted regularly and then four years later to Rotherham who he helped to the brink of the top flight.
Rodney later ran pubs and had a fuel business in Leicestershire before passing away in January 2018.
