Chris Young was undoubtedly a prize duffer but he appeared way back in the 2002/03 season.

Anthony Griffiths. End of debate

Might have been half decent if he had played ?.......but no doubt the most despicable person ever employed by the club in the last decade

Too many players to nominate from the Jim Harvey era when a new player (with 'great pedigree') arrived each week like primary school children exchanging footy player cards in the playground

Quality seventeen minute Alty career. He epitomizes how crud that time was.

No matter your 11 duffers, they're all managed by Neil Young.

If I had been 20 years younger when young was about I could have got a game and been better than most of his rubbish 😅😅

I suppose it would be easy to make a Duffer XI: just any Young team?

Almost - but regretfully I'd have to select Danny Higginbottom.

to be fair to Danny he was shoe horned into a successful defence which was not his fault and should not have been that was weak by Lee and after he came he realised he didn't have the heart for it anymore realised it and moved on taking nothing from the club . To say him over some of the piss takers we have had over the decade is harsh Griffith's for example

I agree with this except to say that Young signed Hannigan, astute signing but i suppose if you throw 40 darts you are going to hit the bullseye once

I'm only quoting Danny as a player who would have replaced Tom Hannigan in a Neil Young team. Griffith, on the other hand, was an absolute toerag, fit only to be mentioned in the same breath as Frank Sh*tclair.

Chris Young was under rated as I said at the time the day before he scored a scorcher.....

That thieving conman who stole a contract of us then insisted on it being paid up after his well known injury 'reflared' ending his career before turning up weekly on the non league circuit ever si9nce....and the c**t is a personal trainer!!

Anthony Griffiths that's the fella....
