81 Tony Towner

Position : Winger

Played : 1985-6

Appearances : 5

Goals : 0

Tony, a 30-year old winger arrived at Spotland in December 1985 from Charlton. He started out with his hometown club Brighton then played for Millwall, Rotherham, Sheffield United (on loan) and Wolves before going to The Valley.

He came on as sub in a home game and made an instantly good impression by beating the full back with his first touch. He went on to play a blinder in the draw at Halifax on Boxing Day. Unfortunately Tony didn’t want to uproot to the North and couldn’t be persuaded to make his stay permanent. When Cambridge came in with an offer he signed for them instead although he only made 8 appearances for them in total.

He moved into non-league football with Gravesend and Northfleet then Saltdean United. He now runs a removals business in Brighton.
