My second goalie after Dave McClaren. Like Oddball I was only watching the Fulham MOTD link early this morning. Oh for a return to that colour of green. As an impressionable 11 year old signing a player who had recently played almost 50 games for the mighty Man Utd was exciting stuff.RIP
Seem to recall Pat replaced Peter Shearing in Derek Ufton's team. My first Argyle game was vs Hull in 1966 which I am sure we won (Bickle scoring and Richie Reynolds I think!) - Pat arrived later in that season I think. A classy 'keeper and a real character, popular with the fans - played for a few seasons for us in Div 2 and 3. Lovely memories - thanks Pat.
RIP to PD. I remember him well as a fine keeper in a relegated team of 67/68, when I saw him playing away in London against the likes of Palace, Millwall and QPR, whilst I was then working in London. I could never quite get to grips with the thought of this big guy of Division One pedigree playing for Argyle and apparently being quite content to continue playing for Argyle, in the old Division 3 for a couple of seasons, when he had the ability to play at a much higher level. Thanks for the memories.
