GET THE THREAD BACK ON TRACK

 

Enoch Showumni.

 

Signed on loan in January 2008 on an emergency loan deal from Bristol City. 10 games 0 goals. I can’t remember who it was against but I remember his only telling contribution being a tame header into the hands of the keeper in from of the Kop. Fun fact: Showumni was recruited as Patrick Viera’s stunt double for a Nike advert during the 2002 World Cup.

Having a little difficulty remembering the players I'd forgot lol 

A goal keeping crisis in 1972 saw Woodseats WMC  Goal Keeper Trevor Pearson drafted in for the honour of 4 games. Peter Pillu was another obscure Keeper I know little about.

 

The bubbly blonde John Merridith looked like a duck out of water in his only appearance for us; Losing a boot in the process. Losing a boot in the early 60's was a near impossible task back then. He did go on to impress playing most of his time with Gillingham and Bournemouth, still survives at 80 years of age.

 

There are of course the odd couple of (Players) you could never forget. I Give you ...Peter Feeley and John Beswetherwick.

Ok we've had a few goes at it but I think the most apt thread title would be - 

 

'Players that played for Wednesday that you never think of, then they pop into your head and you think 'oh yeah, him, I'd forgotten all about him' and then you have him in your head for when someone starts a 'Wednesday Players you've forgotten' thread'.
