Question Answer

Player Nominated

Henry Smith

Nominated By


Where Do You Live


Why nominated

Maybe not as good individually as Niemi or Rousset upon arrival, but this is the guy I grew up thinking had a number 1 in front of his name.

Never found wanting for effort and always had time for a laugh with the fans.

Memorable Games

Celtic at Tynie early 90's.

Produced a physically impossible save to prevent 'tic increasing their lead and inspired us to go on and stuff them.

Man City friendly mid 90's.
Ref awarded us goal kick, much to Henry's irritation.
As all good 'keepers should, he let it be known it was a great save, not a shot wide.
Anyone there will know what I mean.
Dozens more.....

A proper hero.
Altogether now: "Henry, give us a wave, Henry, Henry give us a wave..."
