Played one game for the Junkies apparently. Leicester let him go instead of a younger Peter Shilton, joined Stoke at 28, both quality goalkeepers alright.

Why did he not play for bigger clubs, when he was so good? I suppose the game was different in those days.

He played for St Pats, just once,in 1977.

Sure that 1966 team had 3 from West Ham including Peters and Moore.  Have West Ham ever won  a trophy even? 

1990 Shilton was playing with Derby County as was Mark Wright

Sure they even had two players (Robson, Webb) from another small club that finished 13th that season - Manchester United.

Another slightly interesting stat Ive mentioned on here before ......Liverpool did the Double in 1986 and did not have a single player in the England squad in Mexico.

I was at Richmond Park for his only game for Pats against Rovers. He made an fantastic save from a stinging volley from of all people, Eamon Dunphy. My other memory of the match being perched on the wall in front of the old stand and letting a full packet of Toffo fall on to the pitch. I asked a steward to hand tem up to me. The thieving junkie bastard put my sweets in the pocket of his coat and walked off. I hate those ****s ever since. And no, I wont let it go.

I think he just lose sight in an eye rather than lose the eye completely.

Wasn't aware of that until I read it earlier when I heard he died.

There was a great story from a caller to Banks on the radio, about being constantly asked about 'that' save.

His response was: "I'll be glad when it finally goes in"

LOL
