I was thinking about Curtis Weston earlier, as you do. And then started trying to put together a team of eleven STFC one season wonders. And then thought others might like to think of similar

There are a few ground rules

- they can have played for us for More than one season
- their ‘good’ season doesn’t necessarily need to be their last season with us, but any subsequent seasons must have reverted to mediocrity
- any reasons for only having one good season are valid - be it injury, loss of form, or transfer
- ‘one season’ is defined as a single league season
- maximum of three players per good season (I.e. you can’t just list the 2009-10 squad)


What do you reckon?

Commingues and Brezovan spring straight to mind.

Mooney.

Grant Smith was sort of a six month wonder too.

Steve Finney

He was the first name that sprang to mind for me too.

Billy Paynter

He had one great season but I always rated Billy and the job he did.

Commingues and Brezovan spring straight to mind.

Brez was more of a one game wonder, wasn't he? That's unfair really but he wasnt the same after the broken arm which happened quite early on in the season.


Jan Aage 1994


Was still banging them in during 95, and more than one season anyway.


Eoin Doyle 2019/20


How dare you!

Finney is a good one, he came from nowhere, got his chance because I think Thorne was injured? and banged in a bunch for a single season before returning to obscurity.

 Centre half you'd want  David Cole.... arrived in 84/85 played 20 games to no great fanfare, then playd 44 in the Div 4 record breaking season and was soon moved on toTorquay after the infamous Blackpool 6-2 defeat.

If you go Minge at RB then at LB Andy Ford might merit inclusion. Had been around a bit before and after 78/79, but he didn't miss a game that season in what was a very decent side. Also from that side Chic Bates did well for what was effectively a support striker role.

As is usual for Town we seem to get a lot of strikers who do wellish for a season or so.... say like Peter Eastoe, but he moved upwards.
