Having progressed through the ranks at Blundell Park, the striker was still an apprentice when he played his first game for Town, scoring just two weeks later against Wrexham. It was the first of 89 league goals in Town colours. He topped the charts during the title winning season, playing no less of a part as the first of two promotions in 1978/1979. Mike Lester Having started out at Town, he returned to Cleethorpes in March 1979 after spells at Lincolnshire neighbours Scunthorpe United and Lincoln City. Including his debut, at home to Bournemouth, the defender played all 18 games between his return and the end of the season. Over two spells, Wiggington made close to 300 league appearances for the Mariners. Dean Crombie We won 5-1 at Ibrox that season and then lost 3-1 next time out. Over the course of the campaign the best team will come out on top but it would be a big boost for Rangers for next season. And there's a story worth telling in here. You have to laugh when Drinkell scores against Wimbledon during his time at Carrow Road and John Fashanu points to an area of the pitch, declaring: "The Fash is creating a war zone. Whoever dares to come in better be ready for war." It's not without interest for supporters of Drinkell's clubs. The acid test of an autobiography whose subject never quite hit the top, however, is whether its appeal will extend to a general reader with no such emotional investment. This is not a test that Drinks All Round comes through.

Since 2014 he has been working as a Mercedes-Benz Sales Executive in Perth for Arnold Clark Mercedes. Although it was interesting to get an insight into all the work being done behind the scenes, it is obviously the players and management who we remember the most. So, it was good to see Mike Brolly trotting over to the corner flag to send another ball in, particularly as his two goals were crucial as Town beat Everton 2-1 in the League Cup, in front of over 22,000 spectators in October 1979. I was listening to this game on my transistor radio as I had school the next day and got my radio out again for the quarter-final with Wolves. We have language, then, that clumps about awkwardly like a wooden leg on a dancefloor ("a win-win situation for us both") and is sometimes just plain mystifying. Drinkell considers becoming an agent and: "Being the belligerent type, I decided to look into the requirements." We have thematic links that would have been rejected as too banal by regional TV news presenters in 1985. In singalongs on the Norwich team coach, Drinkell's team-mates were "killing classics from the likes of the Eagles and Dire Straits". Paragraph break. "Thankfully I wasn't hitting too many bum notes on But in 10 minutes the keeper had no chance when a cross from the right was deflected and from 18 yards RIX shot Into the corner of the net. Mike Brolly after finishing with football became a well-respected and popular secondary school teacher but would for a time turn out on Sunday mornings to play for Bridge FC, a team which had a large number of teachers in its line-up.Then, in February 1983, Brooke was involved in a serious car accident. It took him seven months to regain full fitness and, even when he had done so, it was noted that the severity of his injuries had affected his previously remarkable levels of stamina and energy. In short, he found himself short of breath rather too easily. A couple of minutes from full-time, I chased a ball down to the corner flag and the whole ground jumped and everybody was going daft – I thought ‘bloody hell, I’m only chasing down a ball into the corner!’

Bobby Cumming and captain Joe Waters grabbed the goals that afternoon as Town capped off a memorable season at the County Ground. They are going under the radar a bit. They will still be under pressure from their fans to get a result. MERCEDES BENZ. How does flogging Mercs compare to playing football? I’ve been working for Mercedes for five years and I enjoy it. The best advice I received was from one of the old salesmen. He told me never to try and sell anybody a car. If someone turns up at the garage they are already interested in buying a new car. You job is just to guide them in the right direction.Gio just has to come in and impose himself on the squad to make sure he gets the best out of the players for the rest of the season. Similarly, the closing chapters, where Drinkell moves into coaching with Stirling Albion, seem in a hurry to get the whole thing over and done with. Ever wondered how a manager prepares for and feels about his first ever game in charge? "We managed to get a win thanks to an Ian McInnes goal. It was our first league win in over two months." Ultimately, though its intentions might be worthy, Drinks All Round is a half-hearted and unsatisfying book. And that's all the more disappointing from so full-blooded and thrilling a player. Four minutes after the break Richie had a great chance when Hughes and keeper Westwater clashed going to a high all but his net bound shot was cleared of the line by May. With just a couple of minutes left in Govan, an almighty roar from the stands left the players in no doubt that the action in the Granite City was over and that Celtic’s 0-0 draw was enough for the party to begin.
