Fred Barber was the best keeper I think I've seen at Quakers and he wasn't a big fella. The better Darlo teams have always had a strong goalie and if this one turns out well we could do something. Five feet seven can't be right though, the only really short keeper I can remember is Phil Owers who had to cope behind a terrible Darlington team in the early seventies which let in 12 goals in two games with Owers keeping quite a few out. He really got the short straw that season anyone know how he's doing now?
Drawing his pension I would imagine... ;)
According to Wikipedia, he turned out for West Auckland at the age of 52 (he was their manager at the time), in 2008.

No doubt about it, whoever pulls the jersey on is following in the footsteps of some class keepers from Tony Moor, Fred Barber, Alan Ogley, Mark Prudoe Andy Collett through to Jordan Pickford and Pears junior. Welcome to the club!
Kaspar Schmeichel as well!

Thanks for that I was really pleased to know he had such a long career, that season for Darlo must have been hard going but it doesn't seem to have put him off. I'm pretty sure he was in the Frost programme - I think he lived on a farm and ate a pie before the match.

Signed, according to the Echo.

Backup goalkeeper everywhere he's been, as far as I can see. Wonder if we'll go for him, and he'll compete with a loan keeper from Boro as was the rumour. Hemming again, perhaps?
Strange that is still nothing official on the Club website but I guess the Echo knows best!
I am even boring myself now on this "rumour" has he signed or Not?

Do you need FA clearance to play in a friendly?

No, i don't think so. I wonder if we'll see some trialists also. I reckon we may see Holness and the Bermudan striker who are supposedly training with us at least.

Yes, how could I not mention him! Not many other clubs fielded 2 former keepers in the last World Cup ;)
