Granada TV Rental Player of the Year


Unsurprisingly, Garry Nelson was the runaway winner in 1988, scoring himself a crappy little ‘portable’ colour TV to watch Neighbours and Wogan.

The following season and then, in 1991, goalkeepers John Keeley and a less-than-excited Perry Digweed scooped the prestigious prize from the Granada bods, Ian Wedge (pictured twice) and Roy Ovenden.



Granada TV Rental took over from Rediffusion after another keeper, Graham Moseley, won the award in 1985, and their sponsorship was still going strong into the mid-1990s, despite the collapse of the TV rental market.
