Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Crawley Town for­ward

Matt Har­rold –

Best mate at the club? We’ve got a car school – five of us – so we’re all pretty good mates. Jon Ash­ton, Jimmy Smith, Lee Barnard and Youngy (Lewis Young). We’re all pretty tight. We all travel to­gether for a cou­ple of hours a day. You be­come quite close! Last to buy din­ner? Lewis Young. That’s partly be­cause he’d pick me. With all of his mil­lions, you don’t see much of it. The FIFA king? I’ve never even picked up a con­troller, but I hear Bob­son Bawl­ing talk about it a lot. I don’t even know how to turn on a com­puter. Worst dressed? Luke Rooney has come in for a bit of stick for his dress sense on a few nights out we’ve had. But then there’s also John Ash­ton be­cause of the 16-year-old Birken­stock san­dals he wears ev­ery sin­gle day. Luke Rooney wears boot­leg trousers, which went out of fash­ion five years ago. He’s got to let them go. Dress­ing room DJ? Youngy does the tunes along with Joe Mac (Joe McNer­ney), but Joe’s taste is a bit ques­tion­able. It’s a bit var­ied, but I sup­pose va­ri­ety is the spice of life! I don’t even know what it is he plays. Old, ran­dom tunes which no-one seems to know. He gets a bit of stick for them, but he doesn’t re­ally care, which is good. Youngy does a lot of the match­day stuff, which is de­cent. Most skil­ful? Roarie Dea­con would be up there – he’s tricky. Hendo (Conor Hen­der­son) is also tech­ni­cally very good, but Roarie nicks it. Late for train­ing? The lads moan at me a lot for be­ing five min­utes late for the car school ev­ery morn­ing. They might have a point! Teacher’s pet? Jon Ash­ton. He’s never far away from the man­ager, al­ways crawl­ing around him. Best/worst cook? I’d put my­self down for best cook. I can do any­thing – es­pe­cially the high end stuff. Jimmy Smith doesn’t even know how to do toast. First on dance­floor? Jon Ash­ton. As soon as the tunes are on, he does the same old stiff dance ev­ery morn­ing. He does pi­lates which he doesn’t shut up about. He talks about it ev­ery minute of the day – it’s not as if it helps him on the dance­floor! Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Jimmy Smith, be­cause last year he didn’t turn up on the Sun­day. He had about three beers the night be­fore and was strug­gling the next day. We re­mind him about it quite a lot. Worst tat­too? Jon Ash­ton has got the ten com­mand­ments down his back. Pretty shock­ing! Never puts their phone down? The whole team! It’s just un­be­liev­able what tech­nol­ogy is do­ing now. Peo­ple are los­ing the art of con­ver­sa­tion. Pretty much ev­ery­one is glued to the phone. It’s a crime if you do it in the can­teen and a few have been caught. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? I’ve done some badges and I could be OK. Woody (Fred­die Wood­man) seems to have his head on his shoul­ders and is quite sen­si­ble. I can see him be­ing a very good goal­keeper coach. Maybe Si­mon Wal­ton as well. He’s such a moaner he might just nat­u­rally be­come a man­ager.
