Thread: Tommy Wright on Frank Clark

    Default Tommy Wright on Frank Clark

    In 15 years as a professional goalkeeper in England he was injured for seven-and-a-half-seasons and had 10 operations on his right knee alone.

    The worst spell was at Nottingham Forest, where he never kicked a ball for more than two years. Frank Clark was his manager. Clark, strong but compassionate, is the kind of manager Wright wants to be.

    "Frank would come in and he knew immediately when I was really down. Andrew (Wright's five year old son) died during that two years, so I was down for quite a bit of it. He'd say 'Off you go, Tommy. Take a wee break for two weeks. Book a holiday on the club credit card'. He didn't have to do it. There was a warmth and sincerity about Frank."

    Good read, that. Certainly know who I'll be supporting on Saturday.

    Came down to my local park's May Day fair and gave some kids his gloves. No players before or after came to my local village that I can remember.

    Crossley got back in at WBA on the TV I think, because Wright's son was I'll. Collymore scored a couple to win that game, and started playing well. Forest went on a run and Crosslet stayed in the team. Wright was in no place to challenge anyway by the sounds of it.

    We had some quality second choice keepers then. Alan Fettis was very good too.

    Frank Clark always came across as a decent bloke.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    He was manager of my home town team for a while, Ballymena United and I met him. True gentleman. Incidentially, Nigel Jemson also played for Ballymena.
