Martin Carruthers


Sep 25, 2008
Saw the film Marvellous last night - the film about Neil Baldwin who became Stoke City's kit man under Lou Macari. Brilliant film , i would very highly recommend it.... one funny scene was all about where on an away game at Tranmere , Carruthers ( who went on to score 26goals in 70 games for us ) was giving it the big'un about his new silky boxer shorts. During the match Baldwin sneaked back into the changing rooms , stole all of the the players boxers + put them on , then revealed to a very miffed Carruthers that his silky ones were the 1st ones on !!

I was a massive fan of Carruthers , not coz of his boxers , but his all action non stop displays for us . He was possibly the most tenacious Shrimpers forward ive ever seen + this was in an era when defending from the front was unheard of.

Also i smile when i recollect him ruffling the hair in patronising celebration of the hapless Barnet defender who had just scored an own goal .....which suddenly erupted into a 20 man brawl + i think Carruthers harshly got a red card for it.

ah , great days .....:clap:
