Wish him well. Always an Accy legend and with the right team crafted around him he should be able to rip it up at Conf North level. Smash one in against Barrow please Ian.

Bit of a waste of talent IMO - if he wanted to he could still be playing in the league - when he is fit and motivated he can win a game on his own - could see him in a holding midfield role pulling the strings even if his pace has gone.

Shame he just doesn't seem to care anymore.

Re: ian craney signs

Think Sams nailed that un spot on, coulda been playing at a much higher level if the application was with him, as it is "A Legend In His Own Lunchtime"

One of Coley's gems who starred in the Conference winning team! I also witnessed that goal at Morecambe!

Re: ian craney signs

I agree with other posters...Craney had shedloads of potential, but sadly, lacked the ambition and application to back it up.

Bigger sides gave him chances, which he spurned. Could have played Championship level easily.......... had he applied himself.

And it spoke volumes to me when the Dynamic duo let him leave Rochdale. I may be wrong ( & will stand corrected ) but wasn't "lack of fitness" one of the reasons Coley & Bell released him??

Lower league football is full of examples like Craney, who had potential, but never realized that potential to the full. The likes of Putterill, McConville, McEvilly spring to mind. So there's Four prime examples of lads who have graced the Red shirt, who had more than a modicum of ability, but are likely to end their careers muddling around in the extreme lower echelons of the league pyramid.

Incidentally, I too was on Christie when Craney lashed it in from distance, probably one of the best goals I've seen scored by a Stanley player !!

Shame his career never realized his potential really.
