I remember the keep you refer to, @rebus - try John Power from your records? I remember him kicking it twice straight from hand to the other end in a home game that the crowd reacted. Power by name Power by nature. He was a tall ginger kid. I’m sure he played in one maybe two games at GP from memory
Kept a clean sheet at Bristol Rovers and then let in 3 v Wigan. That was his lot.

As Mods are letting us deviate from Mittens rather than move to a Ex-Goalkeepers thread, I will add Peter Borota.

He played a couple of Pre-Seaon games, was in the pre-season team photo, that appeared in pretty much every away programme for that season.
Confusing for some who see the picture now and ask "I didn't know he played for you"?

Who did he play against? Remember the name!

34 Josh Lennie
35 Simon Royce
36 John Mousinho
37 Gary Blissett (I think)
Didn’t Jake Bidwell end a game in goal for us? Started at Everton as a keeper.

No mention of Trevor Swinburne so far. I spent a day with him when he was a prison governor, lovely man who since retiring does a lot of radio work in Lincoln. I think we swapped him for Dave McKellar?

I worked with Graham Cox for 15 years and although he wasn’t a regular due to the 1 sub rule and some bad luck, he is still good friends with some of the ‘legends’ of the time and he has some great stories around that era- not for sharing on here unfortunately but suffice to say the squad had some very good times together socialising. Different times.

Didn't Martin Lange play in goal in a charity game at GP, before one of the testimonial games.

Dave McKellar is the first I remember from my earliest days.
I thought he was amazing.
Dave McKeller was up there with best we have ever had. Sadly IIRC fell out with the management (McLintock ?) and had off field problems (gambling?). Was also I believe on the verge of the Scotland WC squad (1978 or 1982 ??)

Did our current B team coach Jani Viander ever make an appearance when he was a player with us?

No mention of this lad I see, who made Ashley Bayes look like Lev Yashin! Paul McCullough (footballer) - Wikipedia

I remember after one woeful performance, potentially his last, half the Royal Oak trooped down at full time to the players tunnel to scream abuse as the team walked off, I’m ashamed to say I was one of that party.

Ron Willis played once on loan for us in 69-70 I believe. It was a home defeat iirc.

BTW am I the only person taking notice of the original poster talking about goalkeepers that have played for us since he started watching in 1991?

May as well put Thomas Franks best X1 and feature Andy Sinton
