Former PNE Players Thread

Stephy Mavididi seems to be doing really well at Montpellier.

Goes to show that it's usually a waste of time judging players when they're in their teens, stepping up to senior level, unless they're absolutely unreal. A lot of them don't find their feet until they're 22/23. Look at Ben Davies, Emil Riis & Josh Earl

Yes .. Think it was a Monday night after we had lost at home on the Saturday to Bloody Aldershot
Memories of being shoved in a corner of the ground in an area totally unsuitable for the size of our following. Great night though, and definitely a Monday.

They had Vernon Allott on loan and we let him play, I seem to remember he and Alex Jones had a bit of handbags that could have resulted in a red card each.

I went to that game. I remember Steve Taylor played, he might even have scored. We won 3-1, I think.

Ryan Croasdale & Ollie Crankshaw are ex-PNE youth at Stockport too.

Edit - already been said on the previous page.
I went to school with Ryan's dad. He was a really good runner, cross country. I was impressed with that lad on the right wing who took the long throws. If only we played with wingers.
