time was seen as the next David Batty, but after a food run in the
side in 1996, he was sold to Burnley where he was in and out of the
side. A broken ankle early in the 1998-99 season and the replacement
of Chris Waddle by Stan Tennent as manager saw Ford's chances

loan for a month and was released at the end of the season.
