441 Tom Heaton
Position : Goalkeeper
Played : 2009-10 ( on loan from Manchester United )
Appearances : 12
Goals : 0
Tom joined in December making his debut at home to Chesterfield. Tom had been with United since 2002 but had never got past the bench for them. Instead he had a string of previous loan spells with Swindon (2005) , Royal Antwerp , Cardiff (2008-09) and QPR (2009).
Tom got off to a false start by conceding three goals in a defeat but that turned out to be a one-off. He only conceded 7 more goals and kept 4 clean sheets and didn't finish on the losing side again. He was juist excellent - there's little more to say.
Tom was a bit too expensive to keep so he returned to United then finished the season with 15 games on loan to Wycombe. United released him in the summer and he re- joined Cardiff . He made 20 appearances in 2010-11 having to miss some games through a groin injury.
