Mandeville would be a good player from times I have seen him play.

Surprised he has been released.

Somebody above wanted us to sign a 6ft 4 inch striker.  Many, many years ago, when Ancient Mariner was young (ish) we signed a 6 ft 4 inch striker called Gordon Walker.  He came from a lower league or was local.  Can’t remember.

Fans got excited by him as a prospect as he scored a few goals initially, including a 20 yarder in front of the Pontoon.  Alas, it was not to be and it did not work out for him.

Anyone remember his brief stay?

My recall is that we had the tallest, Walker, and shortest, Boylen, players in the FL at that time. The other fact being Davie B was a bloody good player and Gordon Walker friggin dreadful. Was the nearly equally bad Gary Moore just before or after Gordon’s brief stay?

Only too well! For many many years I always quoted him as being the worst player we'd ever had. (although that goal you mention WAS a cracker as I recall.)
Sadly, his efforts have been "surpassed" by more than I can count or care to recall over the Fenty era. 😢

I remember him, not sure if it was him but I remember a cracking header that smashed against the Osmond Stand goal bar but that's about it apart from remembering he was pretty crap.

What I would give to sign a player the calibre of Lump now  


I enjoyed some of the pictures of fans wearing the Lumpaldinho tee shirts on Grim Outlook. Well, when I say ‘some’ I mean one.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

found this from CodAlmighty

Speaking of flashes in the pan, a Cod Almighty reader wrote to me last week to tell me that he used to work with one of my all-time favourite Town players: Gordon Walker. Mark Fenton tells me that after leaving Town, Gordon returned to Northern Premier League football and scored shedloads of goals for Stocksbridge Park Steels. Mark tells me that he and Gordon worked as posties together for about seven years, during which Gordon gained weight at an impressive rate. Gordon arrived on the Town scene, you may recall, in the '68-69 season, as a non-league signing to replace Town star Doug Collins, who was sold for (deep breath) £27,000. Gordon was a very big lad (think like Tony Crane size and shape) who somehow managed about four goals in his first five games. Then (and I can't be arsed to check my facts here), he 'never scored again', becoming an ironic hero for those of us standing in the open corner 'twixt the Pontoon and Barrett stands. Happy days.

Yes. Tall and gangly with little Davie Boylen alongside
That was the days before the greed of the premiershite and incompetence of the FA spoiled the joy of proper footy
