team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Best mate at the club? My fel­low goal­keep­ers, Chris Lew­ing­ton and James Bransgrove. We’ve got a good strong union at the club. We do all our gym work to­gether, we train to­gether. Those two are def­i­nitely top lads. Last to buy din­ner? Sean Clo­hessy is def­i­nitely the tight­est man, he’ll ad­mit it him­self. There’s no chance he would get din­ner. The FIFA king? A cou­ple of years ago we had a coach that had FIFA on it. Gavin Massey plays it, as do a lot of the young lads, but Drey Wright and Alex Gil­bey are sup­pos­edly the best. Worst dressed? Kas­pars Gorkss has just left us, but still needs to be in­cluded be­cause he was ter­ri­ble. He wore jeans that were about four inches too short for him! The dress­ing room DJ? Mag­nus Okuong­hae when he was fit, but at the mo­ment it’s Gavin Massey. He does a good job. He plays a lit­tle bit of RnB and as it gets a lit­tle bit closer to­wards the game there’s more up­beat house go­ing on to get the guys in the zone. The most skil­ful? Sam­mie Sz­mod­ics, Ge­orge Mon­cur or Gavin Massey – there are a few can­di­dates. Ge­orge is two-footed, while Sam­mie has prob­a­bly got the best feet at the club and has a nice turn of pace as well. Late for train­ing? Sanchez Watt. He comes in with lit­er­ally a minute to spare and is def­i­nitely the last one in. We’re pretty dis­ci­plined. There are a few lads, my­self in­cluded, who travel from a dis­tance so ev­ery­one gives them­selves enough time, but Sanchez is the one that tempts fate. Teacher’s pet? Ge­orge Mon­cur has a very good re­la­tion­ship with the coach­ing staff. Sam­mie Sz­mod­ics and Alex Gil­bey both came through the academy, so they are thought of maybe as teacher’s pets. The manager (Tony Humes) has come from be­ing the academy manager, so a lot of the young lads started with him and there’s an affin­ity there. Best cook? Chris Lew­ing­ton fan­cies him­self a lit­tle bit, though I don’t know what he’s got as I’ve never had the plea­sure – or dis­plea­sure. First on the dance floor? El­liott He­witt loves a night out, he’s all over it. We all like to have a bit of a boo­gie and at the Christ­mas do it was pretty good fun. The worst tat­too? There’s a ru­mour go­ing round that Jack Mar­riott, who we have in on loan from Ip­swich, has got an aw­ful tat­too on his back – though I haven’t seen it yet. He gets him­self dressed with his back to the wall so that no-one sees it! That’s go­ing to have to be re­vealed soon. Th­ese kinds of things don’t stay a se­cret for very long in a dress­ing room. Never puts his phone down? Ge­orge Mon­cur – he’s been men­tioned a few times. Tex­ting, games, Snapchat, all that kind of thing, you name it he does it. And so does Gavin Massey. Go­ing to make the best manager? David Fox. He’s the most ex­pe­ri­enced in the dress­ing room. He knows his foot­ball. We had David Wright, who re­tired a few months ago, he’s def­i­nitely go­ing to go on to man­age­ment and I’m sure he’ll make it at a high level.
