Lloyd was far and away the worst keeper in our history. Every time the other side got a corner, you knew a goal would result. Couldn't catch, couldn't punch and couldn't kick. Positioning was hopeless too.

Have always said it was a Great Roots Hall Mystery why Lloyd was brought in and Trevor Roberts was given a transfer .
Agreed,Roberts was very good indeed and Lloyd appeared hopeless but went on to be excellent for Wrexham and Wales .I think he was quite young when here and as I’ve said before ,most keepers are at their best at and after about 30.

So sadly, Trevor was only 30 for 4 months.

Just imagine how good he would have been…….

Yes, he was 21 when he arrived and 23 when he left so very much a youngster. Players tended to be older back then (69/71).
