The saddest debut of all and one of the shortest was probably that of Andy Barnes who came off the bench on the last day of the season for a game against Q P R over at the Bush(we lost 1-0). Poor lad looked out of his depth and didn't make it to the end of the match as Coppell substituted him.

I saw his distraught face as he went down the tunnel pursued by his mate John Salako. They'd been together in America getting their legs fixed after a cruciate injury.

Andy never did play for the first team again.

His name was Phil Barnes. He was my football coach at school and Palace. Knew his football. He also used to eye up girls during PE. While in the minibus there was chat re: fit girls in our year. Damn good at cricket as well. Batted for Purley. zzzzz, I know.

I met Andy today. Nice guy, spoke briefly about his (brief) Palace career, injuries, loan to Carlisle etc - fell out of love with the game somewhat after he had to pack it in.

He signed for Palace in Sept 91 for 70,000.
Clearly thought of by Coppell as a prospect.
Scored on his reserves debut away at Arsenal in a 5-1 romp. ( Other scorers were Collymore (2), Rodger, Brazier.)
Got injured in that first game.
Came back and had a couple more reserve games towards the end of the season in April 92 and his 1st team debut.
The following season he did play in the reserves a bit, making around a dozen appearances and scoring 5 goals. I think he may have had a re-occurrence of his injury.
Went on loan to Carlisle in Jan 94 after 1 reserve game for Palace but got injured again.
Had to retire from injury in June 94.
Palace had him as a pro on their books for nearly three years so I think they gave him every chance. However, it was clearly a bad injury which he never really got over. Very unlucky indeed and I remember vividly like it was yesterday!
Others Coppell signed from non-league at the time who also didn't quite make it at Palace under Smith were Martin O'Connor and Stuart Massey. Two that did were Stan Collymore and Bobby Bowry.

I can confirm, as stated by a previous poster, that he used to turn out for Hurstpierpoint FC in Sussex. My Dad knew him from there.

A pedant writes - Collymore didn't make it at Palace under Smith. He left before Smith took over.

Yes Andy was very unlucky - still seemed upset about it all to me.

My favourite personal football moment was turning out for Old Josephians 2nds as a favour for a mate who was short and as we were getting changed Andy Barnes comes in, sits down and gets changed with us. It hadn't been that long ago that we were chanting his name as he warmed up at Old Trafford! Won 2-1, i got the first and he got the winner!

Very sad for Barnes.

Maybe we should think about how fragile a footballers life can be while we're berating them either at the game or on here. Hold that thought. Maybe that counts for footballers then. As for now, they make so much cash, and'll be insured.

I was at the game against QPR where he featured. Clearly upset at being substituted he headed off straight done the tunnel to the dressing room pursued by John Salako who was trying to consol him.

Somewhere in the loft is a football programme with Barnes and Salako featured on the cover with their injured legs in plaster.

Stuart was in the same Sunday league under 11 team as me. I was surprised when Palace signed him as he didn't really stand out at the time.

At eleven its all about potential, intelligence, determination (by player and parents) and above all good coaching. I've seen children who were excellent at eleven but who failed to work on their skills and were not coached well so that by the time they were fourteen they were average.

Massey was good enough to play 100 plus games for Oxford at a time when they were in the Championship. In fact didn't he score against us at Selhurst on his return?
