The photo on the left is of Colin Snowdin of Thrybergh ex Banksman at Silverwood Colliery, taken at a Silverwood Miners reunion night in 2007.


Now if Colin looks a very happy man well he has every right to be as the father of two of Thrybergh's better known sons who are Glynn and Ian Snowdin who rose to fame as footballers in the latter half of the 20th century.


Alf Evans who was kind enough to send in the photo tells me that Colin was also a very good player in his day, so perhaps someone could send in some info of Colin's days as a footballer.



One thing is certain and that is not only is Colin proud of the lads, so are the rest of us.

Glynn Snodin (born Rotherham 14 February 1960) is a former professional footballer who is currently first-team coach at West Ham United and a coach with Northern Ireland.

He started his professional career at Doncaster Rovers as a 16-year old in 1977 and remained with the club until June 1985 as they moved up and down between Divisions 4 and 3. At Doncaster he made over 300 appearances, many of them alongside his younger brother Ian.
In June 1985 he was sold for £135,000 to First Division Sheffield Wednesday, where he stayed for two seasons, playing 59 league games, and also reaching the FA Cup semi-final in 1986, before another move took him down a division to Leeds United (for a fee of £150,000) where he re-joined his brother. A whole-hearted and dependable player, he scored 13 goals in 116 appearances for Leeds, but found his chances limited by the arrival of Tony Dorigo. In 1989-90 he was a fringe player as Leeds gained promotion to Division 1.
He then had periods on loan to Oldham Athletic and Rotherham United, before moving North of the border to join Joe Jordan's Heart of Midlothian in March 1992. When Jordan left Tynecastle Snodin returned South to join Barnsley in July 1993, spending 2 seasons in the First Division, where he saw out the end of his playing career.

He became chief scout at Carlisle United under Mick Wadsworth while he took his coaching badges. He followed Wadsworth to Scarborough as youth team coach, before returning to his first club, Doncaster Rovers as assistant manager to his brother Ian.
In 2000, he joined the coaching staff at Charlton Athletic as reserve team manager, leading them to the Reserve League title in 2004 and 2005. He completed his UEFA Pro Licence alongside George Burley and in March 2006, Burley brought Snodin to Southampton as first team coach.
In the 2007-06-01 press conference to reveal Nigel Worthington as the new manager of Northern Ireland, Snodin and Fred Barber were announced as the coaches. On 26 June 2007, he joined his former Charlton Athletic colleague Alan Curbishley at West Ham United .

Ian Snodin


 Ian was born on the 15th August 1963, Thrybergh, Rotherham) is a retired footballer most notable for playing for Doncaster Rovers and Everton. He also played for Leeds United, Sunderland, Oldham Athletic and Scarborough.

He started as a trainee at Doncaster along with his brother Glynn under manager Billy Bremner and played in midfield for the club. Even though Doncaster was in the third division at the time Ian managed to earn several call-up's to both the England Under-21's and the under-23's due to being such a strong player at such a young age. He soon caught the interest of the Leeds United manager Eddie Gray and was transferred to the club in the summer of 1985 for £200,000. Bremner soon followed Ian to Leeds United not being able to resist the call from his old club and Ian was appointed captain, replacing Leeds legend Peter Lorimer who had retired from the game. Snodin added class and bite to Unitedís midfield and became the key player in the side


It wasnít long before Division Oneís bigger clubs approached Leeds for his services. Everton and Liverpool both offered £840,000 in 1987, and cash-strapped Leeds accepted. Ian chose Everton as his next team, even though he had agreed terms with Liverpool, and moved there in January 1987. Ian helped his new club to win the title in his debut season. His never-say-die attitude was well received by the Everton fans it wasn't until Ian played as an emergency right-back that he flourished for the club.

This transformation to a defender happened so quickly with such ease and in February 1989 he was called up into the full England squad for a friendly international in Greece. Unfortunately however Snodin was forced to withdraw because of injury and his problems became worse only a few weeks later when he was carried off during a game against Sheffield Wednesday with a serious hamstring problem. Despite lengthy periods of rest and several operations, Snodin struggled to regain his fitness and spent the whole of the 1991-92 season on the sidelines.

In October 1994 he spent a while on loan with Sunderland and then in January 1995 he moved to Oldham Athletic. He later played at Scarborough before returning to Doncaster Rovers in 1998 to manage his home town club. He managed the club for 18 months and then moved in to radio commentary and then covered a Conference game at Doncaster for Sky. He now works as Sky's Conference expert and also does radio commentary, covering Everton.
