33 Malcolm O Connor
Position : Forward
Played : 1982-3 to 1983-4
Appearances : 16
Goals : 3
With a solitary substitute appearance near the end Malcolm wraps up the 1982-3 season.
He was an 18 year old striker signed on non-contract terms from Curzon Ashton and had been scoring steadily in the reserves.
The following season he got more chances in the first team and did OK in a poor side getting vital goals away at Bristol City and Hartlepool. At the end of the season we offered him a new deal but the trainee accountant turned his back on professional football and returned to Curzon.
He soon moved on to Hyde where he scored 55 goals in 1986-7 and then to Northwich but never turned out for a League side again. One hopes he doesn't regret the decision now.
