  • Jim McNichol Testimonial Match 4th May 1992 Exeter City X1 v West Ham United

  • From Wikipedia/The Guardian: "In July 1986 he joined Torquay United. On 9 May 1987 Torquay were heading out of the Football League, 2-0 down to Crewe Alexandra at half-time on the last game of the season, they needed two more goals to ensure survival - McNichol, Paul Dobson and a German shepherd called Bryn saved the day for Torquay. McNichol scored from a free-kick, then in the dying moments ran to the corner flag to whip in a cross, little realizing his run would confuse the police dog into thinking he was about to attack his handler. The dog bit McNichol on the leg and the player had to be treated, during the minutes added on due to the injury Dobson scored and Lincoln City were the ones to lose their league status on goal difference."
