Best SSML striker ever?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember Tony Ratcliffe from the 80's for Eaton Bray and Totternhoe. Went on to play at a much higher standard.

Absolute superb player and if not for dodgy ankles, would have been a pro. Had to retire early due to his injuries.

Was it McCarthy who used to play for you when you were in division 2, always scored a lot.

Ryan Redford - now that Johnny was a top player. Didnt he break his leg , snap ligaments or something? ... He was part of the Hertford mob that were feared by all sides many moons again.

Ryan's a great kid, not really played since getting his leg broken against Cheshunt(?) I think. Assuming that feared Hertford side comment was tongue in cheek?

Talking of strikers where has Emond Protain gone?

I was wondering that as well just the other day.

Ryan returned to Hoddesdon after spells at Hertford and Biggleswade and unfortunately broke his leg upon his return in an FA Vase game at Lowfield against FC Romania. I remember the game well and if I'm honest can't believe Ryan was the only Hoddesdon player that day to end up in hospital. One of the dirtiest sides I've ever had the misfortune to watch.

I hear they were in the market for a new set of showers during the last transfer window

Played with and against some very good forwards in every sml division but always hated playing against Jimmy Hill, Jimmy Armstrong(postals) and Bullet (London Conley)

You talk as if its all over for the Danger ? He still has plenty of life left in them old legs once he shrugs off this knee problem, he would be back playing by now if it wasn't for the way he charges around at work holding that trowel and then replicates it on a Friday night causing havoc in the wagon and horses(Dunstable).

Garry Sippetts for me. Darron Hay maybe.

Old Sippo? ... Former Chesham and hemel lad? Who did he play for in South Mids?

 

Never heard of the latter.

We haven't had many great striker IN THEIR PRIME, but have to say, we were spoilt with Lewis Putman's best years in ssml football, think he should've earnt a move to a pro club off the back of that wonder season.

Honourable mention, Andy Humphrey at Tring. What a performer over the years, he'll go down in folklore in that part of the world.

Andy is still banging em in for Tring Corries in Division Two this season,  would have been right up there as top scorer in SSML if his hamstrings had held up over the past few years. Top bloke to go with it to !
