Arthur BarnardHe was kept in the background at Bolton by the performances of veteran 'keepers Stan Hanson and Lancashire cricketer Ken Grieves. He played against Southport Reserves on a number of occasions when turning out for Bolton Wanderers 13' who were members of the Lancashire
Combination for a time. His 2 appearances for the Wanderers League
team were the last games of 1954-55 and 1955-56 when he conceded a total of 7 goals at Leicester and Huddersfield. When he moved to Stockport County he also had opposition from Ken Grieves but eventually became their first choice. While at Stockport he had a bad accident when he spiked his leg on a riling when collecting a cricket ball and for a time
it looked like the end of his career. After a disagreement over terms he
was transfer listed. He did not miss a match at Southport after signing in September 1959 and immediately ousted the unsettled Jack Richardson. He is still very interested in cricket and is a committee member at Kearsley C.C. and still lives in the Farnworth area. Neck problems have forced him to give up his window cleaning job.
