Ricky Chandler - Midfielder

Debut : Bridgnorth Town (A) - 18/10/88

Last Game : Bromsgrove Rovers (H) - 02/05/92

Ricky was a former England schoolboy who came through the ranks at Bristol City and had the distinction of being the only remaining players on their books when a financial crisis forced them to release all of their squad in 1981.

He spent five seasons at Ashton gate before signing for Bath City and failed to win the fans over as a striker but had more success on the right wing. He had a season and a half with Yeovil following a 4000 move before going back to Twerton Park.

It was from Bath that Brian Godfrey secured his services and he made his debut in the Southern League Cup at Bridgnorth on October 18th 1988.

He played his part in the Championship race, namely as a central midfielder with an eye for goal and one of them, the equaliser at Tamworth was key during the run-in.

Ricky lost his place in the side the following season and was completely out of form when Brian Godfrey put him on for the last ten minutes as City were leading 2-0 at Cardiff in the FA Cup. Many people saw the substitution as the reason why we drew.

Things did get better for Ricky though, a few months later he stunned everyone when he scored a hat-trick in the 5-2 home win against Ashford Town.Following the 1991/2 season where he played under both Godfrey (twice) and Steve Millard's disasterous spell in charge Chandler wasn't retained and opted to join Weston Super Mare and came back with Shaun Penny to knock City out of the FA Cup!
