Travelling Baz

I know it is a bit sad, but I can't help but keep tabs on Super Barry Conlons career. Last season, after going out on the lash with Matty Clarke, our Smooth Headed Testosterone heavy hero was banished from the team, and found himself banished on loan to the backwaters off Grimsby Town, who at the time of his arrival look doomed to the Blue Square Conference. But the Bazmeister got his cape back from the dry cleaners, and went on a mad scoring spree, thus rescuing the Mariners from the ignominy of the semi professional ranks. But some nefarious ne'er do well must have sprinkled Kryptonite on the pitch at Blundell Park, as Bazza saw the red mist, and was sent off not once but twice, as they sunk into the bottom two. It was at this moment he seemed to disappear off the radar. But what was that I noticed in the results section of the Sunday Times? Chesterfield Town had beaten Torquay one nil, with a goal scored by a chap with the surname Conlon. Could it be one and the same? It most certainly was, as the Travelling Bazza scored on his debut, making it 116 goals in 431 games, for 12 different clubs. If only he had been picked to play for Ireland against France.....
