Pen Pic:  
Returned in April 2000 to the club where he made his name as an influential goal scoring midfielder as City scraped about desperately searching for the magic formula to stave off the drop. Is not as stick like as he once was, and his return ended up[ lasting no more than one game. Business interests have prevented him fully committing to football since leaving the professional game, as is demonstrated by the bewildering number of clubs he's appeared for in recent seasons. City fans had hoped that the mix of nostalgia and fondness for his old club could tempt Talboys from his south-west London base to commit to appearing for the Tigers again, but that did not happen. 
Was an original Godfrey signing back in November 1987, and went on to grow into being an integral part of the City side that lifted the Midland Division shield in 88/89. Sticksie was a feared predator (not only on the pitch!) and would often ghost into spaces left behind the forwards to snatch crucial goals. Stayed at Gloucester long enough to notch up over 200 appearances, and easily made the transition to the DML Premier. He is perhaps best remembered for a typically powerful header from a corner that beat Dorchester in the 1st Round of the FA Cup back in 1989, still City's best ever FA Cup campaign.
Sticksie left amid the post-Alderman financial crisis and the enforced break-up of Godfrey's side. Eventually left for Wimbledon in January 1992 for a scandalously low 11,000 transfer fee, although he'd also had trials with Birmingham City, Bournemouth and Swansea City before the offer of the Premiership came along. Enjoyed four years with the Crazy Gang, and although he failed to become a regular in the first team he succeeded in playing four times against Manchester United, grabbed his sole league goal against Spurs, and became Wimbledon reserve team captain. His time at Selhurst was cut short by knee trouble, and made the move to Watford in 96/7, but his one season there never recovered from a falling out with then manager Kenny Jackett. Sticksie then left the pro game to concentrate on his business arranging corporate events, but has carried on playing football for a host of semi-pro sides.
