Dearden Back Where He Started

The Notts boss Dearden started his career with Oldham back in the summer of 1963 and made 40 league and cup games for The Latics and scored just 4 goals for the club.

Following his 3 years with Oldham, Dearden moved on to pastures new and joined Crewe Alexandra before a move to Chester City a few years later.

In 1970 Dearden moved to Sheffield United where he hit 70 goals in 160 games and helped them achieve Division 1 status before moving to Chesterfield to end his career.

Dearden will be hoping for better fortune than on his last visit to Boundary Park, when The Magpies were knocked out of the Worthington Cup in September by Oldham, with Dutchman Clyde Wijnhard netting a late winner.
