Are there any particular stand-out left wingers/midfielders from yesteryear?

I'm thinking back to and before Dave Venables (if you'd even count him?) as everything before that point is unknown to me.

Always had Dance down as a centre-forward - was he a winger then?

He was a right winger. Jim Daintree was the centre forward.

If you are going back as far as Athletic, you've got to include Dave Spillane.

Also Brian Parkinson (just seen below Hedgie was a fan of him too). Like Jose wishaw hehad great dribbling skill for a SL player but also with an edge about him that GW would have liked.

Parky was be absolutely brilliant on his day...it's just that it wasn't his day very often.
I remember him tormenting Wimbledon in a Southern League Cup match at Plough Lane.
It was Parkinson 3 Wimbledon 1. After that Bill Coldwell (manager then) put a £10,000 price tag on him.
Nobody paid it.

Though someone who actually saw him play may know better 😊

Phil Driver was more of a right winger (although he'd tell you he could play all over the park).
Phil is a mate of mine. He'll be pleased people still remember him at the Boro.

Phil Driver was an apprentice at Luton. Released and joined Bedford Town. Got spotted by Wimbledon before a move to Chelsea. After Chelsea he went back to Wimbledon but broke his leg in his first game back. The end of his professional career saw him move to non-league Stevenage Boro. He left when "big" non league St Albans made him a better offer.

These were the time the players often played for other teams on a Sun morning. Think Danny played for Bowaters or BAE.

Was it not Twin Foxes, or was that someone else.

Newspaper cuttings from the early 1980s suggest the Boro' manager was not happy about them still turning out on Sundays.

Lee Harvey not a definite left winger but runs down the wing and crosses to Carl Alford in my Boro best 11.

Jose Wishsaw could 'dribble' ('1950/60/70's footballing term') down either wing before cutting inside to score. He was our non league George Best

Where did Mr Lynch hang out? Seemed to remember over on the left wing? He didnt really look the part but he could certainly play!
