Former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley says he wishes he could ‘turn the clock back’ and resume playing for The Reds.
Crossley established himself as a firm fans’ favourite at The City Ground and he was thrilled to attend this week’s 150th anniversary gala dinner.
He told Forest Player HD: “It’s a pleasure. It’s a club that’s really close to my heart. I had 12 fantastic seasons here and I just wish I could turn the clock back.
“I’ve bumped into a few people and shaken their hands. Most of them say: ‘Thanks for your efforts. I’ve followed your career since.’
“It’s always nice to chat to fans of a fantastic football club.”
Crossley had the honour of presenting Dorus de Vries with what he says was a deserved 2015-16 Player of the Season award.
The former Red said: “I’ve been following him quite a bit and he’s done remarkably well. He’s been pulling off saves left, right and centre.
“For 35 years old he’s in great shape and I’m sure he can carry on for a lot longer.
“This club’s been renowned for having solid goalkeepers, and he’s carried that on.”
