Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Best mate at the club? I’m a so­cia­ble guy so I’ve got two! Mark Roberts and Stephen Jor­dan are both great lads and we get on re­ally well, prob­a­bly be­cause we’re a sim­i­lar age. I’m the youngest by the way! All the older lads have fam­i­lies so don’t have much time out­side their foot­ball. Last to buy din­ner? Stephen Jor­dan. He’s not the last to buy din­ner, he just never buys it! I’ve never known some­one to for­get their wal­let so much, it’s re­mark­ably con­ve­nient for him! The FIFA king? Ste­wart Mur­doch is the best, but he’s never off it! Him get­ting in­jured didn’t help any­one’s cause ei­ther as he’s had plenty of time to hone his skills on the Playsta­tion. Worst dressed? Most of them would prob­a­bly say me but I’d nom­i­nate Conor McLaugh­lin. He’s not got any­thing that goes well on him but peo­ple in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones! The dress­ing room DJ? Conor McLaugh­lin again, he puts a lot of mu­sic on be­fore games to try and get the lads pumped up, but it’s just a blur to me! There’s a real eclec­tic taste in the dress­ing room, but Conor usu­ally has his way. The most skil­ful? Young Nick Haughton is very skil­ful and he’s prob­a­bly the best in the squad – par­tic­u­larly when you con­sider he’s only 20. You never know which way he’s go­ing, he’s like a wee bal­le­rina with great bal­ance on the ball. Late for train­ing? Steven Schu­macher – and he’s got no ex­cuse as he lives about half an hour away from the train­ing ground! Best cook? That has to be Ste­wart Mur­doch – he brings cakes and lit­tle bits and bobs he’s baked into train­ing quite reg­u­larly, and he’s ac­tu­ally quite good be­lieve it or not! My favourite is a lit­tle Scot­tish Mars Bar cake that makes a nice dessert af­ter train­ing – don’t tell the nutri­tion­ist though! First on the dance­floor? Conor McLaugh­lin. I think the kid thinks he’s Michael Jack­son but some of the moves he pulls off are shock­ing. He should stick to the day job! Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? We’ve got quite a sen­si­ble bunch, but be­cause of his danc­ing it would be Conor McLaugh­lin. The Christ­mas do is usu­ally a re­ally good laugh, but a few of the older lads weren’t able to make it this time round which was a pretty poor show­ing. The worst tat­too? Wee Nick Haughton. He’s got some words tat­tooed on his waist and claims he has no idea what they mean. It’s in a ter­ri­ble font, al­most like some­one wrote it on him with a pen. He says he got it on hol­i­day when he was drunk, but he ob­vi­ously does know what it means and won’t tell us! Never puts their phone down? Conor McLaugh­lin is al­ways go­ing on about his phone, and David Ball does as well. Bally can’t go to the gym or leave train­ing with­out a phone in his hand! Go­ing to make the best manager? Mark Roberts. He’s do­ing his coach­ing badges and he’s very in­ter­ested in that side of things. I think he’ll def­i­nitely be a top boss when he’s re­tired, but he’s got a few years left in him yet!
