Just seen some footage by my mate from 2005/2006 time and I forgot how decent he was for us for a short period of time considering he frame etc. Tough league too. Last time I see him was at Spennymoor, he is still there?

I remember seeing him play at Northampton away. A superb player albeit slight in stature. He had a fantastic first touch.

Superb? He ended up in the Northern League after Darlo.

Think you're over-rating him a tad there.

He WAS superb - my standout memory was him leaving lots of Chokers in his wake in the League Cup match in Codsville.

I’ve no idea why it didn’t work out - he certainly had more ability than most (if not all) of our other midfielders in the surrounding years.

I seem to remember Peacock barged a much bigger player off the ball at the Arena. He was ok, but his stature was always going to hold him back.

I thought he ended up working with his uncle at Grace Brothers

Beat me to it Pete!

It was a big black lad playing for Oxford, Peacock came and nicked the ball off him he looked round in total shock had no idea what happened! One of the funniest things I've seen at a Darlo match :lol:

He showed a great deal of promise at the time bags of ability but was always "too small" especially for a midfielder.

Half pint was far to fond of a full pint (or two )
