How many made top flight appearances?

Clark, Edinburgh, Prior, Taylor all did.

The only two others who might have, would have been Nelson at Charlton and Pennyfather, although I've forgotten where he ended up.

Pennyfather went onto Palace, Ipswich and Bristol City. None of which were in the top division.

Palace then Ipswich wasnt it? Though dont recall him playing in prem so he may have left just before each went up...
