Tony had what he described as probably the best season of his career to date in 2016/17, and the statistics certainly back that up. He played in all but one of our 56 games, and as the last line of a defence that conceded only 32 goals in 46 league games, kept 27 clean sheets in all competitions. In short he played a huge part in our success, two stunning saves in the play off semi final and the final to prevent last gasp equalisers summed up his season perfectly, and he deservedly won the Manager’s Player of the Season award. His continued presence between the posts gives the club a huge boost as we return to Step 2 football.
Tony will pass 250 appearances this season in what is his third spell at the club, and has previously turned out for Rushall Olympic, Sutton Coldfield Town, Kidderminster Harriers, Tamworth and Solihull Moors.
