What player have we signed that has been successful that has surprised you most?

Recommended Posts

Most of Fergie's Furies


Hunter Beckett Young Copland Richardson Stark Fitzpatrick McGarvey Hyslop McDowell all unknown till they starred for Saints

And more in the coming years such as MacDougall MacAveenie Weir Somner Clark Wilson Ferguson etc.

Great days to be a Buddie!!


PS Have you noticed that for about 10 years Saints main striker was Frankie Mac - McGarvey, MacDougall  MacAvennie and McGarvey again!!😎

Craig Samson is definitely up there, low key signing at the time as a backup keeper, not highly rated, yet he became an absolute legend, league and cup winner and penalty hero. Andy Dorman as well. I'd never heard of him, came from the American league, yet was a brilliant player for us. Conor Newton is another candidate, especially after his honking debut.

Overall though, I think I'd go with Yardley.
