Born in Chesterfield, Poole started his career at Manchester United before joining Town in September 1968 on a free transfer after not making a solitary appearance at Old Trafford.
Spending nearly a decade at the club, Poole was one of seven ever-presents as the club won the Second Division title in 1970.
Tall and agile, the stopper was blighted by a number of leg breaks as the club began to spiral down the divisions from 1971 onwards.
Francis was the club’s first-choice goalkeeper for four seasons during the Neil Warnock/Brian Horton era and was a key component in the 1994/95 Second Division promotion campaign.
However, he fell out of favour at the club early into the 1997/98 season before eventually moving to Northampton Town in January 1999.
The goalkeeper spent just half a season at Town on-loan during 1997-98, during what was later to be known as ‘The Great Escape’ campaign.
An ever-present between the sticks during his tenure at the club, playing 26 times, he was awarded Player of the Year for a number of outstanding performances as the club hauled themselves from the bottom of the old First Division.
Born in Belgium, Vaesen moved to the club in May 1998 from SC Eendracht Aalst, making his debut for the club in an opening-day league clash against Bury.
However, it was an instantly forgettable bow with the stopper lasting just 10 minutes after being controversially red carded in the 1-0 First Division defeat.
Despite the initial set-back, Vaesen went on to win the club’s Supporters’ Player of the Year award that season and make a further 135 league appearance for the side during a three-year period.
A product of the Wrexham AFC Academy, Ward left the Racecourse for Liverpool FC in January 2012 without making a solitary competitive appearance for his hometown club.
Highly-rated at Anfield, the stopper enjoyed a success loan spell at Aberdeen before joining the Terriers on a season-long loan deal for the 2016/17 campaign.
The 23-year-old was an integral part of the promotion-winning side, saving crucial penalties in the Play-Off semi-finals and final against Sheffield Wednesday and Reading respectively.
