    Brian made his reserve debut on Saturday 17th August 1968, at home to Gillingham. He came on as a substitute. He broke his ankle making his 99th reserve appearance on Saturday 16th December 1972, and had to wait 3 months to make his 100th reserve appearance on Saturday 24th March 1973.

  • Did Brian become a manager of Rushdon... also I believe he played in North America for the Toronto Metros. Can you confirm these thoughts ["Noddy" was manager of Rushden & Diamonds from 1997 to 2004. According to Wikipedia he had two spells (in the summer of 71 and again in the summer of 72 on loan from Town] as a player with the Toronto Metros of the NASL]

  • Local lad went to Toweramparts School - also chairman of the PFA, went on to manage, Stoke City, Rushden and Diamonds, Oxford United and Oldham. Now the maanger of Maltese Club- Marsaxlokk FC who he led to the championship last year.
