It was a different time. You can`t say it was a happier time just a........weirder time. When Noel Edmonds ruled the Telly. With Mr Blobby. And God gave us Kevin Dearden.



This portly Goalkeeper who resembled Billy Bunter and kept goal like Gordon Banks was the ultimate in journeyman players. Kevin plyed his trade at ten clubs before finally settling at Griffin Park for the best part of six impressive seasons. He signed from Portsmouth and established himself as Brentford`s number 1 with Tamer Fernandez his only credible competition in sticks. He was famously robbed of a goal kick on the tele (with a striker rolling the ball into the unguarded net) and at the height of his popularity was hailed by the Brook road faithful was waved inflatable pink dolls and sang 'Mr.Blobby` at him.



With over 200 appearances for the Bees under his not inconsiderable belt he moved to Barnet on loan and eventually Huddersfield where he continued to jump from club to club like a frog with OCD.
