Posted by SCAN on 9/1/2018, 8:32 pm
We were recently asked if we would present 1980's County player Craig Farnaby with his SCAN certificate.He is now a PE teacher back in his native Teeside and was recently the receipient of a "This is your Life" event at the school. We broke with tradition and the Head teacher presented Craig with his certificate (see pic below and one of him on his home debut v Hereford). This is the note we received from Craig: |
Hello, my name is Craig Farnaby.
It was a great honour to represent Stockport County Football Club from 1987-1989, a period of time I remember like it was yesterday. I had the privilege of playing in a team Managed by Asa Hartford (Player/Manager), with Len Cantello as Assistant Manager, a fantastic partnership with a wealth of experience. Playing in the middle of midfield alongside Asa (The Gaffer) was an experience to cherish, itís not often you can say you played in midfield with a player who has represented his country in the World Cup Finals.
During my time at County there were 3 players from the North-East, myself, Tommy Sword, and Ian McKenzie and the Stockport faithful made me us all extremely welcome, and I would like to think we returned the compliment by putting a shift or two in for the football club.
I currently work in a Sports College in the North East and the picture attached is of myself, and Headteacher Mr Craig Walker, recently presenting me with a framed certificate as the 931st player to represent Stockport County Football Club. This was a very proud moment to receive the framed certificate as recognition of my time at County and I am extremely grateful to all concerned for arranging this.
Many thanks again and best wishes for the future to all associated with Stockport County Football Club, a cracking football club!!
