A very very good player at that level as we all witnessed. Couldn't quite make the step up to Championship though. Great attitude. I've a lot of time for TC.
Not sure if I thought he’d be this capable at 34 but fair play to him!

A goal kick from Harrow Borough FC
Probably being too brave for his own good - big deflection or miscue. He needs to let the‘keeper earn his money too....

“If he gets one, he’ll get another” is normally said about strikers....

Were they 1st and 2nd halves? Ie in the same end? Pitch geography!

Brilliant player for us in L1....

I'm sure this is not the first time he has scored for both sides, whole at Bristol Rovers.

I liked him, especially his 5 on 1 save, and his penalty v Swindon, how cool can you get 😎
I think the 5 on 1 said just as much about Oldham (?) players than TC, but it was tremendous work on his part!

Just signed for Crawley Town following release from the Gas. Apparently now 35. Crawley have also extended Dannie Bulman's contract. He's now 41 and is the oldest player in the EFL! Crawley will have to get a new nickname like the Vets, I think! They obviously think there is no substitute for experience!

Good luck to him, always gave 100% effort for us, and will never forget his one against five defence.

Tony Craig playing for Crawly Town v Leeds on TV today in FA Cup.
Crawley doing a good workmanlike holding of Leeds, with also making Leeds make a last ditch save.

Crawley just scored - great goal!

There are few players who maximise their ability like Tony Craig. Gives absolutely everything he has.

A decent guy is Tony....met him on the underground after returning from a game up north and he chatted about all things Brentford and how he loved playing at GP...a real gent and a credit to his profession....knows a few dark arts as well :sorted: :giggle:

Tony is a master of the dark arts. Also, whereas some players rely on their physique to "bully" opponents, TC is somehow naturally intimidating. Oh, and he's as hard as nails too, if it comes to it.

One of my all time favourites, is Tony. :sorted:
