Returning players
« on: March 04, 2021, 09:57:06 AM »

Last night on the Alty fans Zoom chat we were discussing players who returned to Alty and were more successful in their 2nd or 3rd spell. So far I've come up with...

Ian Morris
Graham Heathcote
John Davison
Peter Eales
Gary Anderson
John Brady
Ricky Harris
Stuart Coburn

So not many in almost 50 years

Any others?

Lenny Dickenson - leading scorer in 62/3 season but a mainstay of the side from 72 - 77

Johnny Worth - 8 appearances in 63/4 returned to the club for great seasons from 66-72

Yes how did I miss Lennie, saw him play right at the start of my time watching Alty, Johhny Worth was before my time

Who's going to be the person to suggest Tom Peers?

The most influential returned on the list so far has to be Mr. S. Coburn, if only for his length of service to the club. It was a privilege to watch him.

Cap doffed in his direction.

I think that would have to go to John Davison - 2 titles, 2 Trophy wins, just about every memorable FA Cup victory up to 1986 etc and even saved us from relegation as temporary manager in 1992.

Les Rigby, the manager who let Davison, Heathcote and Eales go from their first spell, clearly was a poor judge

Johhny Worth was before my time

Wow.
Today's been a reality check for me!
First off, too vulnerable to be back at ML with all you invulnerable youngsters.
Now, the great Johnny Worth, well and affectionately recalled, is before your time!

Hope I'm still here when it's safe for me to go back to our ground! 😉

In all sincerity, so do I. Sometimes its easy to forget that we aren't all in the same boat. Stay safe in the meantime and hopefully you'll judge the risk is low enough for yourself at some point this year.

Thanks Cheshire.
Due my second jab in a few weeks so a fortnight after that, I'll chance seeing some of the grandkids. 

Can't see either myself or Mrs S being back at ML before next season 😕

Mark Maddox.

Departed for glamorous Barrow at the conclusion of the 1997/98 season, only to return to Moss Lane during the following season.

At a push, you might include Gary Stewart, Ossie Smith and Lawrence Iro, all of whom had initial spells with Alty as reserves/first team fringe players in their early years.

And what about the great Kevan Hawkins...?

There must be loan players we’ve had that have gone back to parent clubs and then signed for us. Ceesay for one.
