Happy Birthday Don
Don O'Riordan made 109 league appearances scoring 5 goals for County. Don was John Barnwell's first summer signing in 1988 from Grimsby for a fee of £16,000, a fee set by a transfer tribunal. Don played a key role in taking Notts into Division One via the Play Off's against Brighton and who could forget the 30 yard screamer he scored in the 2-1 defeat against Tottenham in the 6th round of the FA Cup. Unfortunately Don's career was cut short by injury in the opening game of the 1991/92 season at Old Traffford against Manchester United. The following season he was rewarded with a free transfer and followed Neil Warnock to Torquay.
