Carl Alford

Born 11 February 1972 (Age 24 at debut)

Position: Forward

(Diamonds player #58)

Total appearances 62 – 25 goals

(52 League, 3 FA Cup, 3 FA Trophy, 1 League Cup,

2 Hillier Senior Cup, 1 Conference Shield)

Debut:

30 March 1996 (Home Halesowen Town)

Final game:

31 January 1998 (Away Cheltenham Town)

In 1988 at the age of 16, Carl made his debut as a substitute for Rochdale but failed to impress and was later released. After periods at both Burnley and Stockport County (plus a loan period at Morecambe), he made the decision to drop down to non-league football, joining Witton Albion where his knack for goal-scoring flourished. In the summer of 1993, he joined Macclesfield Town of the Conference for a fee of £1,700, and then later joined Kettering Town for £25,000 the following summer.

After scoring 54 goals for Kettering in 18 months, Rushden & Diamonds’ offer of £85,000 (a non-league record) was enough to persuade the Poppies to sell their prize asset and he arrived at Nene Park at the end of March 1996. He made his debut in against promotion rivals Halesowen Town on 30 March 1996, scoring Diamonds goal in the 1-2 defeat, but it was Diamonds that pipped Halesowen to the Southern League title, mainly thanks to Carl’s six goals in the nine remaining games of the season. The following year, Carl was joint top scorer with Darren Collins, but he fell out of favour with manager Roger Ashby and was placed on the transfer list on 25 November 1996. With no offers, he returned to the side the following month. Brian Talbot took over in March 1997, and he continued to make the side, but he was dropped after just five games at the start of the 1997/98 season and was loaned to Dover Athletic in February 1998. He was recalled and sold to Stevenage Borough on a free transfer in April.

He scored more than a goal a game at Stevenage, and was snapped up by Doncaster Rovers in May 2000 for £50,000. The goals dried up again however, and after a period on loan back at Kettering Town in January 2001, he joined Yeovil Town in the summer helping them to lift the FA Trophy in 2002. The following season, he was on loan at Nuneaton Borough and was released by the Glovers in May 2003. He went on to play for Gainsborough Trinity, Woodley Sports, Leigh RMI and Nuneaton Borough (again) and was last noted plying for North West Counties League side New Mills AFC in the 2006/07 season, although he is no longer on their books. He is now looking at pursuing a coaching role.

Steve had been playing in non league football was with Bromsgrove Rovers during the early-1990’s, before a move to Kettering Town just before the start of the 1995/1995 season. An attacking midfielder, he came to the attention of manager Roger Ashby and signed for Diamonds in December 1995 for a £30,000 transfer fee. After helping Diamonds to the Beazer Home Premier Division title, he also helped them to survive their first season in the Conference, making 37 appearances that season, despite suffering an injury in the FA Cup tie against Bilston Town in October 1996 which kept him sidelined for three months. Diamonds had a poor start to the 1997/1998 season and when Yeovil Town put in an offer of £9.000 in September 1997, it was accepted and he joined the Glovers.

Steve Stott

He became Yeovil’s club captain under Gary Johnson, but suffered a knee injury early in the 1999/2000 season resulting in an operation on 20 December 1999. He had little chance of returning to first team action at Huish Park, so left at the end of March 2000 to join Woking. He was released in the summer of 2001, and joined Slough Town, later becoming their assistant manager. In September 2002, Steve moved a step down again, this time with Wessex League side Thatcham Town where he ended his career.

Brendan Hackett

Brendan Hackett

Born 2 March 1966 (Age 29 at debut)

Position: Midfielder

(Diamonds player #54)

Total appearances 105 – 12 goals

(89 League, 5 FA Cup, 2 FA Trophy, 4 League Cup, 4 Hillier Senior Cup, 1 Conference Shield)

Debut:

30 September 1995 (Away Cheltenham Town)

Final game:

2 May 1998 (Home Telford United)

Brendan played for a number of non-league clubs during his career. The talented midfielder started out with Bilston Town, Stourbridge, Redditch United and Dudley Town, before joining Worcester City in 1990. He attracted an offer of £25,000 from Gloucester City in April 1991, which included striker Steve Fergusson in the deal. He made some 27 appearances for Gloucester before moving on to Telford United in December 1991. After a brief spell at Bilston Town, he joined Hednesford Town, helping the Pitmen to the Southern League title in 1994/1995. He played against Diamonds in their first ever defeat in September 1992, an FA Cup tie at Hednesford. After an excellent start to Diamonds 1995/1996 season, manager Roger Ashby brought Brendan to Nene Park in September and he made his debut at Cheltenham Town on 30 September 1995, in a hugely important victory that took Diamonds to the top of the Southern Premier table. He quickly became a key player in the side which gained promotion to the Conference, remaining with the club for a further two seasons. Ashby wanted to keep Brendan at Nene Park as they pushed for Football League status, but he did not want to jeopardise his career in the Steel Industry, so elected to move to Burton Albion on 8 May 1999. After a brief spell back with Gloucester City, being released as they reduced their budget, he joined Stourport Swifts in August 2000 for their first season in the Southern League Western Division, as a player/coach. After the departure of manager Rod Brown, he took over briefly as caretaker-manager, but soon joined Brown for a second spell at Redditch United in November 2001. He appears to have finished his career at Redditch at the end of the season.

He had originally been with Diamonds manager Roger Ashby at Wolverton before playing for Kettering Town and Barnet. He joined the Chairboys in the summer of 1987 and was in their side which did the double in 1993, winning the Conference title, as well as the FA Trophy. He also helped them to promotion the following season.

After some 13 appearances, the arrival of Steve Holden from Kettering Town saw him move down the pecking order and he departed in January 1996 to join Dagenham & Redbridge. He was in their side which lost the FA Trophy Final against Woking the following season. After a spell as Assistant Manager at New Bradwell St Peter he joined Aylesbury United as a coach for the start of the 2010-11 season. He became Aylesbury United Assistant Manager before taking up the Manager role, but left that role at the end of 2017.

Born 15 February 1970 (Age 25 at debut)

Position: Defender

(Diamonds player #52)

Total appearances 20

(11 League, 4 FA Cup, 3 League Cup, 1 Hillier Senior Cup, 1 Conference Shield)

19 August 1995 (Home Salisbury)

Steve started his career with non-league side Moor Green before signing for Kidderminster Harriers in 1987. The left back was a member of the Harriers team which reached to FA Trophy Final at Wembley in 1991, losing to Wycombe Wanderers. He came to the attention of West Bromwich Albion manager Ossie Ardiles and signed for the Baggies just ahead of the 1992/1993 season. He was ever-present in the side that season – winning the Division Two play-off Final against Port Vale at Wembley Stadium. He made a total of 86 appearances before a series of injuries and the arrival of new manager Alan Buckley in 1994 led to his departure at the end of the following season. Steve arrived at Nene Park in June 1995, but was injured in his second game for the club at Chelmsford City. He only played in 12 games that season, plus a further eight games during the next. Whilst at Nene Park, he was studying for a degree in Physical Education and Social Psychology and he left in May 1997 to be closer to Coventry University, rejoining Kidderminster Harriers. Steve ended his career with Moor Green in 2000 largely due to persistent hip injuries, which resulted in a couple of operations. His studies however helped him to a BA/BSc and he also gained UEFA Coaching awards, sports coaching certificates and a Sports Psychology Diploma. He also passed his teacher qualifications in 2005 and is currently a teacher of PE at Ninestiles School in Acocks Green, Birmingham and also runs the Soccer Start Coaching Academy in Solihull.
