Good article in the News and Star about one of my favorite players,i remember a cup game where he ran the show in the first half and the opposition man marked him in the second to nullify him,i think it was either Sheff Wed or QPR.

One of my favourite players too.
He was elegant, good on the ball and could score goals.
Again, unfortunately he was one of those players who certain sections of the crowd would criticise if things weren't going well.
One of the best games I can recall at BP was on 7th December, 1994. We won 3-0 v Bury when we were both going for promotion. Conway got the second, 12000 plus crowd inside and hundreds locked out.
Happy days.

He quickly grew into the English game, but can anyone remember one of his first games for us where he opted to dribble out of defence rather than a simple clearance

Micky Tash was so angry with him, that he actually ran onto the pitch to admonish him

If only he’d put away that chance early in golden goal time in ‘95!

Good player.

As my mate shouted from the paddock in every game!

He had his moments though.

Mick Wadsworth, now he could spot a player.

True he didn't get stuck in but give me a Conway over a Prokas any day.

He was my fav player of the 94/95 team and one of the few footballers with half a brain.

When he was on top form he was fantastic, seemed to have a lot of niggling injuries which held him back. Had a perfect view of his goal at Fulham in 94, one of my favourite Carlisle games ever. Jimmy Hill said it was the best performance he'd ever seen at that level (Carlisle not Fulham).

A very interesting article and I can't think of many ex players who could go off and train as a lawyer. I can however think of many a player who has felt the wrath of the paddock over the years.
I, along with many on here I expect was one of those who had said they would never go to Wembley unless it was to support CUFC, never thinking that it would ever happen. Just reading that piece gave me goosebumps - what a day, what a weekend.

I remember how skinny his legs were-he used to wear leggings under his shorts and even they looked loose.But in his day he was class-but rather like Phil Bonnyman Piglet, he was marmite in some quarters.

He certainly was one of the better technical players in the side but always seemed a bit one paced to me. Probably should've scored more goals than he did.

He seems to have done well for himself after football so good on him.
