LOSING three fingers never stopped him goalkeeping, and now Glens goalie Clive Guppy has came out of retirement to help his old team.

Just over a year after packing in the game due to ligament damage, Clive’s determination has seen him return again.

He said: “It was good to be back. It was just to help them out, as there were in a bit of a sticky situation.

“I don’t know if I can go back full-time, but if they need me I’ll play.

“My ligaments seem to be okay, I got the all-clear from the surgery, it seems fine.

“It’s just been my mentality over the years, I don’t know where it comes from, it’s just a personal thing.”
