default Best keeper in the world

21/3/2014, 17:59
...or at least that has played for Lancaster City!

I posted a few other possibles on the "where are they now" thread but I have to reiterate my selection of Mark Thornley as the best keeper I have seen filling a City shirt.

Wolfie certainly rates among the all time greats. I never saw Glen Johnston(e) but I would put in a claim for Brian Newman and Ken Udall alongside the above named and Fearon-Fearon.

I should note I was making reference to the chant when referring to Fearon as the best of all time in the other thread. As a far more junior dolly he is the best I've seen though - I only saw Wolfie in his twilight years. Hale to be fair has done a solid job too.

Agree with Brocker as regards Brian Newman and also thought Stuart Murdoch was a good keeper. More recently Martin Fearon

In Fearon's favour - he made fewer silly mistakes - I have some terrible memories of Wolfie charging recklessly out of his area. In Wolfie's favour - he dominated his area better, and he also played for us at a higher level than Fearon. Both made a lot of great saves. I'd be happy to sit on the fence and call them equal best. Of all time. Ever.

I believe when he played for us that Stuart Murdoch was a schoolteacher in the Blackpool/Fleetwood area. Many years later (maybe about 7 or 8 years ago), he was manager of Wimbledon. A strange career move!

Glen Johnstone went on to play league football with PNE, but I think he was beset with injury problems. Maybe the maclad remembers him??

Stuart Murdoch worked with Glenn Roeder at Watford, then was goalkeeping coach at Wimbledon, before becoming manager at Franchise FC.

John Beck signed Glen at Deepdale where the LEP awarded him several MOTM accolades during his brief career. He suffered the injury that ended his professional career on a preseason visit to sn srmy sssault course

I have heard that health and safety is an issue when you visit sn srmy sssault course.

Does anybody not remember Willie Houldsworth ? He was a superb keeper for City. Or Gary Hudson for that matter.
