Started in midfield then went to left back and finished up centre half when he beefed up and was skipper for a while ....was a decent player in the 3rd division but once big jack signed mick Pickering his days were numbered .. ..had a number of years as a manager at various clubs one of which was burnley who's fans took a dislike to him so much the tried to set fire to his wife .

Thanks - just gone out and had a look at that.  Madness when you ask the quality of player and its leads to stories like this.  I thought the situation with Man Utd and Woodward was a beyond crazy but its seems like the stupid minority have always been there,

He was in a great center half partnership when he played alongside me whilst on holiday in Lanzarote. 

Great down to earth bloke

Not the most gifted but always gave 100% and would run through a brick wall when wearing the shirt.

Probably about the millionth person to say or think this, but sounds that the type of person with the characteristics we could do with right now

In my opinion, a very limited, one dimensional footballer ( sorry Jimmy ) who compensated for it with total commitment.

A reminder of the really ‘ dark days ‘

" always gave 100%, would run through a brick wall when wearing the shirt",  " compensated for it with total commitment"...………………………………………………………….. A much better proposition than some of the "players" who are milking the club now.

 

" a very limited one dimensional footballer"...……………………………………………...…………….Very similar to some "players" who are milking the club now.

I recall him scoring a cracking goal at Millmoor against toy town, think he joined them not long after. 

 

Edit.. 

Sat 13 Oct 79  Rotherham United........ 2-1    18,500   Terry Curran, Jimmy Mullen

Looking through an old box of programmes passed down to me I've come across a Jimmy Mullen Testimonial Brochure. He's a player before my time so generally just looking for stories feedback on a player who dedicated over 10 years to our special club. Fond memories?

JM.jpg

I’m sure he played in Jack Charlton’s team that got promoted from the old Div 3. 

Scored the winner in a 2-1 win at Millmoor. Raucous times. I couldn’t see a thing but another great day out none the less.

Didn't David Sunley also make his debut in that game?
