Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the people featured in the accompanying pre-season squad photograph are now. I'm sure most of this is well known by Zoners already, but this is what they had to say about the squad:
