The Legend*
Cart Horse

Great effort Si and seeing as it’s been up for 3 hours and you’re the only one to attempt it I’m gonna award you the pint.

Only 2 incorrect, The Legend was Joe O’Connor. Played a handful of games during 1999-00 season. Was given the nickname during his time at Hednesford after scoring 2 Goals in their 3-2 win over Middlesbrough in the F.A Cup.

Mr T was of course Adam Thompson. Hence why he’s chant was to the A Team theme tune.

Cheers Butz, I should have got Adam Thompson but had no idea about Joe O'Connor. Great quiz, let's just hope we get some football again soon!

We once got fined by the Suburban League when Trevor Jones submitted an official teamsheet for a reserve game with "Tuc" on it.

I'm pretty sure he passed away while still a Kingstonian player - or am I completely wrong?

Erm..not sure he passed away as a Ks player, but I think
he has passed away. Used to love watching him play in the same
side as Johnnie Doyle. Keith 'Ghosting' past defenders and John literally
tying them in knots with his mazy runs.

My bad and VERY embarrassed for posting what I did.

The car crash relates to another Keary- perhaps his brother who also played for K's. Details here:

I am enjoying this Player nickname post, sorry I can't add to it but it does take my mind off other things!!! Keep 'em coming. Come on you K's sooner rather than later.
