Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Harry Bunn - Hud­der­s­field Town for­ward

Best mate at the club? I get on well with all the lads, we’re a pretty tight-knit squad, but I’ve played against Conor Coady since we were about nine and I’ve known Tommy Smith since we were 13 at Manch­ester City to­gether, so I’d say I’m clos­est to those two. Last to buy din­ner? A few of the lads would say Sean Scan­nell – it’s not so much that he’s tight but he has a bit of a rep­u­ta­tion for bor­row­ing money and con­ve­niently for­get­ting to give it back! But I’d say Tommy Smith. He can be very slow to get his wal­let out on a night out. Worst dressed? Joe Lol­ley. He’s straight from uni, so he still dresses like a stu­dent which isn’t a great look. Some­times it will be a track­suit, some­times a dodgy jumper but it’s never good! The dress­ing room DJ? It’s usu­ally Joel Lynch who will put his iPod on be­fore the game – he’s got 80s, 90s, a bit of ev­ery­thing on there re­ally. I don’t mind his choices but a cou­ple of the lads aren’t that im­pressed with them. No-one else steps for­ward though, so it’s nor­mally up to Joel. The most skil­ful? It’s def­i­nitely Sean Scan­nell – he’s got quick feet and he does a lot of stepovers but be­cause he’s so strong, de­fend­ers find it hard to get close to him. I like to drib­ble with the ball but I don’t throw too many tricks in – I’ll leave that to Sean! Late for train­ing? Jack Robin­son is in­cred­i­bly laid back – he’s al­ways the last in and cuts it in­cred­i­bly close. If it’s a 10am start, you know he will rock up at 9.59am and not be wor­ried at all. Teacher’s pet? I don’t know if he is the manager’s (Chris Pow­ell) favourite but Conor Coady def­i­nitely wants to be! He’s so keen to get on the gaffer’s good side and he’s been get­ting a bit of stick from some of the lads for it lately. Best cook? I know my way round the kitchen, so I’ll say me! I cook for my­self at least which I’m pretty sure a lot of the guys don’t do! Never puts their phone down? Joe Lol­ley, but a lot of the lads are pretty bad for that, I must ad­mit. If you step into the chang­ing room most of the squad are on their phone – it wouldn’t look like we’re a par­tic­u­larly so­cial lot! It’s mostly play­ing games or tex­ting other peo­ple – we wouldn’t want to have to talk to each other! Par­tial to a sunbed? I know Tommy Smith used to use them a lot! He’s got a nice tan usu­ally so it has to be him be­cause it isn’t par­tic­u­larly sunny in Hud­der­s­field at the mo­ment. Go­ing to make the best manager? I’d say our skip­per Mark Hud­son. He’s been in the game for a while now – he’s got the most ex­pe­ri­ence in the squad and I reckon it’s some­thing he’ll look into soon. He’ll make a re­ally good manager be­cause of his lead­er­ship skills. He doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily give big speeches but when he does speak, you lis­ten – he says the right things at the right times and then he leads by ex­am­ple as well.
