Fonners on the bench for Wales today - some things never change! He did play 16 minutes as a sub once which must have given him an average of 2 splinters per minute over his international career. Currently with Dunfermline.
I rated him also. Similar type to Scotty in that he was a good shot stopper. Not as good a kicker as Scotty but a lot less of the time-wasting antics.still only 33 which is young for a keeper so a few years left for him before he swaps his gloves for a paintbrush. I always thought he was a decent keeper for us
It shows what a great academy we once had. It was a sad day when it had to be closed due to young players being developed free by us being poached by the big clubs without any compensation. If the likes of Tom Davies had been allowed to remain at Rovers and we had received a proper transfer fee, as in the last century, our club would be much richer.I know we've already mentioned it but this caught my eye today
