Into the 1990s as we go up twice and down once
We’ve continued adding the results, league tables and programme covers today with the next five seasons, covering the period from the 1990/91 season through to 1994/95.
The previous five year period had been spent in the Fourth Division but this five years covers the time when we finally got out of there on that glorious night at York in 1992. We then moved up another division two years later having beaten Stockport at Wembley in the Division Two play-off final before, disappointingly, suffering relegation a year later.
A total of 54 players had made league debuts in the previous five years and that record was maintained but only just as 53 players made debuts during this five year period while there was also a return for Steve Davis who had been with us on loan from Southampton during the 1989/90 season. He joined the club permanently in the summer of 1991.
Of the 53 new players, only Marlon Beresford went on to reach 200 league appearances. He finally played 287 league games for us in three spells. Another ten reached three figures; they were David Eyres (175), John Pender (171), Mark Winstanley (152), Gary Parkinson (135), Chris Brass (134), Adrian Randall (125), Gerry Harrison (124), Adrian Heath (120), Paul Smith (112) and John Mullin (101).
The full list of debutants during this period is: Ian Bray, Paul France, David Hamilton, John Pender, Danny Sonner, Graham Lancashire, Mike Conroy, Steve Harper, Andy Marriott, Mark Yates, Adrian Randall, Mark Kendall, Nicky Walker, Robbie Painter, Paul McKenzie, Steve Penney, John Clayton, Adrian Heath, Les Thompson, Marlon Beresford, Brian Mooney, Leigh Palin, Louie Donowa, Paul Wilson, Steve Slawson, David Campbell, Nick Pickering, David Eyres, Warren Joyce, Kevin Russell, John Mullin, Ian Patterson, Nathan Peel, Tony Philliskirk, Gary Parkinson, Ted McMinn, Paul Smith, Alan Harper, Liam Robinson, Chris Vinnicombe, Mark Winstanley, John Gayle, Gerry Harrison, Wayne Russell, Jamie Hoyland, Wayne Dowell, Craig Armstrong, Andy Saville, Chris Brass, Paul Stewart, Kurt Nogan, Steve Thompson and Paul Shaw.
There was only one managerial change in this five years. It started with Frank Casper in charge with Jimmy Mullen taking over in October 1991 and continuing right through to the end of the 1994/95 season and beyond.
The League Tables from 1990/91 to 1994/95 are all now available and in the drop down menu as are all the Results for the same seasons. These results don’t yet carry the opposition scorers although these will be added as soon as possible. The Programmes for all of the five seasons are also now available.Share this page :
