Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Chris Maxwell - Fleet­wood Town goal­keeper

Best mate at the club? Conor McLaugh­lin. I have known him the long­est, we are about the same age and we both signed for Fleet­wood at the same time. Last to buy din­ner? We don’t eat to­gether that of­ten but David Ball isn’t keen on dip­ping his hand in his pocket – that’s the ru­mour from the guys in his car pool, Conor, Jimmy Ryan and Ste­vie Jor­dan. The FIFA king? I would be up there – I’m a bit of a com­puter geek – but there are a few of us. Jamille Matt, who has just gone on loan to Steve­nage, Conor again and Amari’i Bell are all pretty good. We did a tour­na­ment last year and I won but never got my money! Worst dressed? It’s bad when you start think­ing of your­self for th­ese! It’s go­ing to have to be me – I dress for warmth and com­fort, not for fash­ion. Dress­ing room DJ? Conor McLaugh­lin is very fond of Justin Bieber at the mo­ment. I saw that story about Southend on Twit­ter and tagged him in it – it could have been us! He is play­ing noth­ing but Chris Brown and Justin Bieber but it goes down pretty well. Most skilful? David Ball has got pretty good feet and showed what he can do to get a nom­i­na­tion for the Puskas award. I don’t take much no­tice at train­ing so I’ll go with him. Late for train­ing? We are all pretty good for time but I would say our new sign­ing Dion­atan Teix­eira. I don’t think he has the right time on his watch, put it that way. Teacher’s pet? Bobby Grant shares his opin­ion a lot and the man­ager likes that. Jimmy Ryan is up there too, but ev­ery­body loves him be­cause he’s just a good guy and a good pro. Worst cook? I hon­estly don’t know. All I know is I’m the cook in my house. I live with my mis­sus, Bethany, and I don’t let her near the kitchen be­cause she would burn the house down. First on the dance floor? There are three of us – it’s me, Conor and Jamille. Conor thinks he is Chris Brown. We go out when we can but it’s not very of­ten dur­ing the sea­son. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Ev­ery­one is ac­tu­ally quite well-be­haved. I have definitely been in worse teams, where we would get into a lot of trou­ble. Ask me again in two weeks when we’ve had our Christ­mas party! Worst tat­too? De­clan McManus has a ter­ri­ble tat­too on his back­side from Ma­galuf a few years ago. It is so bad, you can’t even tell what it

is. Never puts the phone down? You are lucky to get a word out of Jack Sowerby. He is al­ways tex­ting some­body or do­ing some­thing else on it. Par­tial to the sunbed? It used to be Mark Roberts but he’s not here any­more and noone has fol­lowed in his foot­steps. It’s definitely not my thing. Go­ing to make best man­ager? I think Nathan Pond would be good. He has got great ex­pe­ri­ence and he has a lot of knowl­edge of what is ex­pected from play­ers at this level.
