Former Treasurer and 1st team skipper, Goody was a regular for the 1st team for nearly 20 years bar a few months travelling and getting married. A hard as nails Geordie, with an unrivalled passion for the club and the game plus the odd beer or twenty (later refined to a bottle or two of red wine).
Having to be on his toes with the promise of younger players joining the club, Goody was always keen to show how fit he really was. At one notorious pre season training session, he insisted on doing double the exercises of everyone else, and ended up throwing up in a bush.
However, Goody could always add some grit and determination to either club side, plus if an opposition player started throwing their weight around, you could guarantee they would find out how hard he could tackle.
