Yes there's big name players seeing out there careers in the lower leagues but which have been the biggest coups? 

I remember when we (Bradford Northern) nearly signing Greg Alexander when we were as fashionable as flares.

Nowt wrong with Flares in town. Divorcees-a-go-go

Wally Lewis at Wakefield, he could have played for any club in England but he choose them, they lost every game when he went home and got relegated.

Didn't Wally Lewis' brother play with him at Wakefield?

He signed for Wigan but never played.

Soward at London. 

I'd put Scott Hill in this category before Soward for London. But I'd say neither of them are really under the remit of the OP.

But as for underperforming "big name" players (and the inverted commas are deliberate): Spud Carroll by a country mile.

This is a difficult topic: you could say Bob Lindner at Oldham, but Oldham were a decent team back then.

Edit: thought of someone definitely on topic, Gary French for Springfield Borough.

Brian Bevan and Billy Boston - the two greatest wingers of all time - both played for Blackpool Borough, late in their careers.
