Anybody on here see him play?

Was he a decent keeper?

I was given an old programme from a Chelsea v Leicester game recently, late 60s at Stamford Bridge, and whoever's programme it had been at the time had added an asterisk next to Mackleworth's name and written 'very good'.

That was a few years before I started watching City so I don't know much about him.

Saw him play for City once, and loads of times, for Kettering Town. He was a decent non league keeper.

I Saw him play twice, both in 1971, beat Notts Co 2-0 in the cup then we got hammered by Brum 4-1. Ironically, that was the start of our 20 odd unbeaten run that took us up as champions

If you had seen him play more than the odd game you must have been a dedicated spectator of reserve games - not only was Shilton top class, but he hardly ever got injured.

I was at both the games Micky mentioned, but other than him being small and inclined to stay close to his line (both in marked contrast to the imperious Shilton) that's all I can recall. And as for the home thrashing by Brum, no one there could really believe it. That was one of the best defences we have ever fielded, in any division.

I saw a vid of Barnsley v City in the cup the other week, 1968 and CM was playing in that one.

Bradnor, Shilts always seemed to get injured around Jan time, another game that stuck in my mind was Orient in the cup, Shilton was out crocked and Carl Jayes had a mare

See CM on YouTube Rotherham v Leicester,FA Cup 1968 at Millmoor.
Also George Heyes long time understudy to Gordon Banks.
Both very good goalkeepers. They had more competitive action in the Football Combination in those days!

The Rotherham cup tie was Mackleworth's first team debut,Micky. He played in the replay at Filbo too.
Can't remember now where the ammonia was thrown over us at Rotherham or the following season in the cup game at Barnsley. More probably at Barnsley.
Click's sheepskin took the brunt of it,I can still see it sizzling now. Back to Shearlings International near Coton Arches in Codder to replace it!

I can remember Joe Corrigated at Man City. He was only 5' 10" in real life.They used to flatten him out to 6' 2" in the dressing room!

And here he is in glorious techno er I mean black/white. I was standing behind the wall on the right behind the goal by the letter T or U. I was passed horizontally over people's heads from the back to the front. My folks joined me about 20 mins later! Those were the days. Thought Mackleworth did well as that was an intimidating atmosphere. Quite one of the loudest lot I ever remember.

Oi hide. He played double the amount of games for us compared with your lot. 6 games to 3. Is that a record? Just 9 games in your whole career?

Was there and thought they were very unlucky, spent a bit of time in The College Arms before hand(I think it was) Harsh for them having to face the penalty again. Excellent day out though.

Was at the Rotherham replay. He had a decent game. Unlucky in his time with us to be behind the unbelievable talent that was Peter Shilton.

He looked very vulnerable in that 1970-71 1-4 home defeat against Birmingham. I recall missing Shilts badly that day.

Cheers for that link, it looked like a cracking cup-tie.
In the part 2 clip, Mackleworth pulls off a great save at the death and there's an unbelievable goal line clearance too.

Anyway, referring back to the original post, I've got my goalkeeper asterisks mixed up.

It wasn't Mackleworth who had the 'very good' written next to his name (not surprising really as he let in 4 that day at the Bridge in his only league appearance that season - a week after the Rotherham cup match) no, the asterisked 'very good' is written next to City keeper Joe Calvert's name in a programme from 1946. A 1-1 draw at Chelsea. The first of four consecutive games against Chelsea between 5th - 19th Jan!

So, anyone see Joe Calvert play? Was HE a decent keeper?

BIBLE EDIT - I see he ended up at Brush Sports.

The reason for the 1-4 defeat against Brum is simple ,a certain 16year old called Trevor Francis who had just broken in to the first team and was unplayable ,i had seen him play against Birminghams reserves a few weeks before and he was a class above every player on the pitch even though hewas playing against some really old school leicester defenders , my favourite save of all time was made by George Heyes who was the res goalie when Banks played for Leicester ,he performed a perfect cat dive against Spurs 1964?? at Filbert st, never seen one done since.

I never saw Joe Calvert play but I did have a small speaking part,as 4th brothel client, in Fanny By Gaslight alongside British Gainsborough era actress Phyllis Calvert. It also starred James Mason and Stewart Grainger.
On it's American release 17 minutes had to be cut including all of my brothel scenes. Another blow to my dreams of Hollywood stardom!
On a happier note it did lead to my only guest appearance on This Is Your Life. When Eamonn Andrews surprised my old friend Phyllis with the famous red book in 1972!
