Hall of Fame No. 30

Remembering one half a famous pair of footballing brothers

Stu Park (1987 - 1991)

Alf and Stu Park joined the club together and formed the spine of Bill Brindley’s title-winning team.

Though they were brothers, their physique and playing style could not have been more different: Stu Park was a beefy centre-half who gave opposition forwards precious little change.

An experienced, no-nonsense stopper, he was the perfect foil for the elegant Steve ‘Sherlock’ Holmes, who struck up a watertight pairing with him in the heart of the FC defence.

The highlight of his career was undoubtedly the 1988-89 when the Park brothers, together with the likes of Graham Cox, Baz Barker, Mark Keyworth and Gary Goddard,  won the Central Midlands League Supreme Division title plus the Lincs Senior A Cup for good measure.

Stu scored one of the goals in the 3-2 final win over Spalding. He had a phenomenal goalscoring record for a centre-half - in fact he probably has as good as goals-per-game ratio as any defender in the club's history. He notched nine in that double-winning season and went even better with 11 the following campaign.
