20-year old Pat was Vic Halom’s last signing on loan from Sheffield United for whom he had made 16 appearances.
He made his debut in midfield in the 3-3 draw at home to Torquay and was abysmal. His last game was at left back covering Dave Grant’s suspension and he was very good. Nevertheless Eddie Gray didn’t extend his stay.
At the end of the season he was released and joined Chesterfield. He made 49 appearances over two seasons at Saltergate before joining Gainsborough Trinity. He briefly moved to Australia with Blackwood City but after only 2 appearances returned to England with Buxton.
