Just seen that ex Frickley keeper Andy Carney is assistant manager at Maltby Main. Was brilliant for Stocksbridge Park Steels
but seem to lose his form in a Blues shirt. I remember him playing as a striker in a Sheffield Senior Cup match at Parkgate.
His sheer size drew many comments from the Parkgate fans that night and quite a few couldn't understand why he wasn't
between the sticks as he had always played brilliantly against their side. Wasn't the worst Frickley forward I've seen by a long
Who was Frickley's best keeper? Personally, I liked Roger Chapman and Henry Smith. Tommy Meehan might get a few mentions,
a Blues' legend but was dodgy by the time he played for Denaby United, probably went on one season too many. Jon Hood might
not be the best ever but he had his moments and has never let the club down and is there if required.
I'm sure Hoody will be happy that you mentioned him, We've had some good un's over the years...Tommy Meehan wasn't the biggest, also Ian Wardle wasn't either, but both excellent stoppers. I would put Ben Simpson up there with them as the best keepers.
I can't remember Smith playing, my memory don't stretch that far, i remember Paul Maxted ?, also who was the keeper we had that was caught kerb crawling around Donny, an ex pro ?.
