    Lyn Davies was the back up keeper to Bob Wilson. He used to wear red, not the traditional green strip. He looked good but never really was up to it. He's in the photo of the Hamburg away programme I posted recently.

    Jim Eadie was keeper during my first season. (What is it with us and Scottish keepers btw?)

    I really hope we can keep hold of Etheridge and that he realises we're the best place for him. Marshy left us to play in the prem, didn't work out that well for him.

    There's still a school of thought that Marshall didn't have much say in that move and balancing the books had a lot to do with it.

    Dont recall him as being particularly bad tbh..although I may well be wrong. Not sure he had that many games as a 1st team regular asJim Eadie / Bill Irwin seem to figure most in my memory after Fred Davies. Had forgotten about Parsons until you mentioned him.

    It surprised me how few games Frank Parsons played for City (less than 20). I don't remember him as a bad keeper at all, but Bill Irwin and then Ron Healey arrived and that was that for Frank.

    I remember watching a city reserve game vs Arsenal reserves (Radford playing for Arsenal reserves!) and Irwin was sitting a few seats away in the old Grandstand...his hands were massive...seemed like jcb buckets never mind shovels!!

    Scoular realised that he’d made a real error signing Parsons early on ,take a look at one of the best games ever at NP (for the neutral or Borough fans) anyway .it had everything and even all these years later when l watched the highlights l was shocked how much I still remembered about it.The game had that goal (Peter King) a penalty save by Parsons when we were leading 3-1 but we still managed to lose 3-4 thanks to some unbelievable errors by dear old Frank:hehe:

    I had forgotten that game, apart from Peter King's goal. I have just found the programme. I can see that Jim Eadie took over in goal after that game.

    Another who really didnt have that many games and played 2nd fiddle when Tom Heaton arrived.

    Re my original observation...I cant think of anyone who was a stand out liability, useless keeper. I'm sure they all made errors at some point.
