The other retired footballer is David DunnNews Group Newspapers Ltd

The footballer enjoyed a decent career as he won a Cup League during his time on the field.

And the player in question? Garry Flitcroft.

The former Manchester City academy graduate made over 400 appearances in his career.

He won the club’s player of the season award in 1993.

Fliftcroft transferred to Blackburn in 1996, spending ten years at Ewood Park.

He won the League Cup in 2002 and retired from playing in 2006 after a lack of form and persistent injuries while at Sheffield United.

The 50-year-old has now started his own Timber business called ‘Flitcraft’.

He has a factory in St. Michael’s near Garstang in Preston and works with 24 other people.


And one of these is none other than former Blackburn star David Dunn.

The retired midfielder made over 300 league appearances for Rovers across two spells at the club.

The two were teammates at the club for five years between 1998 and 2003, when Dunn left for Birmingham City.

Dunn retired from playing in 2016 after a short spell with Oldham Athletic.

He went into coaching and spent time at his boyhood club Blackburn before moving onto Blackpool.

Dunn went on to manage at Barrow, but only lasted 22 matches. He was most recently a first-team coach at Port Vale last year.
