Been loyal to City over six seasons and enjoyed the club's run to the FA Trophy
semis and third place in the DML Premier before surviving repeated financial
cutbacks and relegation. Originally signed as a right-back by John Murphy from
Cheltenham Town and has since become a key part of the teams of Leroy Rosenior,
Brian Hughes and Tommy Callinan. Stayed at the club through a serious career
threatening knee injury and a contract dispute that was only settled on the eve
of a FA tribunal.
Finally though life at Meadow Park seemed to prove just too wearisome and Tucks
headed for the lesser demands of Bishops Cleeve in July 2001, despite being the
City captain and current player of the year at the time.
Tucks could boast subtle passing skills and overcame suspicions that he was a
little lightweight to become a key player in either defence or midfield. Looked
at his best in midfield where his right foot could carve open defences, although
he rarely contributed quite as many goals as perhaps could be expected.
A hard working player who fills holes and gaps all over the pitch. Took on more
responsibility as the club disintegrated and continued to graft despite his
obvious discomfort at the clubs circumstances. His departure will be a real blow
at City and is sure to be contacted if he may consider a return in the future.
