This is my third attempt at posting, so I hope this one works!!
Two goalkeepers I played with could have made it to a pro side I believe, Keith Etheridge who played for Horsham was an excellent shot stopper, although a little on the short side, but certainly Dai Mason should have been a contender. In fact both he and I were offered the chance to attend trials at QPR, but neither of us decided to go for various reasons.
Then of course there was Colin Wolfenden, who has been mentioned here, and who was a player with superb silky skills and should have gone far I believe, although his seemingly "casual" approach may well have put scouts off.
I was lucky enough to have played with many good players in Sussex, having played for Horsham, Worthing, Horsham YMCA, Three Bridges, Wick and Portfield, and a couple of them with excellent skills would grace just about any side in the pro leagues if they had the application. Davy Owens who was a Crawley guy had some fabulous skills, but didn't like training and was content to just get a game wherever he could, however to see him on his day, you would think you were watching Charlie Cooke.
