Tony Knights

Anthony Frank Knights Date of Birth: Mar 13, 1940

Tony made his League debut for his local side Grimsby Town, who he had joined from school, in December 1959 and although not a regular in the side over his first couple of years at the club he did manage to secure the left-half slot for the Mariners during the second half of the 1961/62 campaign which ended in promotion to Division Two.

The hard working Tony held his place at the higher level but following Grimsby’s relegation in 1964 he was surprisingly handed a free transfer and was snapped up by Luton.

He fared little better at Kenilworth Road as, after making two League appearances, he injured his back and when fit again could not force his way back into the first team. He was released in 1965, moving to Aldershot and then back to Lincolnshire with Gainsborough. Tony died in 2001 from a heart attack while at Waltham Windmill Golf Club.
