My hometown team, non-league Cumbernauld United of Scotland, once took Kenny Dalglish on loan from Celtic way back in '69 or '70. For a few brief halcyon months they had at their disposal a player who would go on to become one the finest strikers in the world and an all-time scoring legend. So where did they play him ? In goal !! There's a picture in the club house of a young Kenny upto his knees in mud, all padded up, between the sticks looking bemused. No wonder they were non-league.
