Where are they now? Promotion squad 96/97
Matty Appleby was another midfield dynamo that broke down attacking teams and played very well under Wilson and Hendrie. After his 6 years at Oakwell which went rather unnoticed by some fans, he moved on to Oldham on an initial loan which was permanent in 2002. Later he had a cameo season at Darlington and then Whitby Town where he eventually hung up his boots.
Appleby has given up football to become a deep-sea diver.
