Reginald 'Reg' Jenkins born Millbrook, Cornwall on the 7th October 1938. Probably the most acclaimed and talked about footballer to ever to have appeared in a Rochdale shirt. Signed from Torquay United in the summer of 1964 by manager Tony Collins, for the then princely sum of £3,000. A barrel-chested forward Reg soon became a favourite with the Spotland faithful, scoring an impressive 25 goals in his first season, a post-war record and appearing in all the league games. His contribution helped Dale up to the dizzy heights of 6th place after years of obscurity.[1]

Jenkins was part of the promotion winning team of 1968/69 and scored a brace in the promotion clinching final match of the season against Southend United. He scored 119 goals for Rochdale a club record and made 305 appearances a then record, surpasssed a year later by Graham Smith.[2]

Jenkins was voted Rochdales best ever player by the clubs fans.[3]
