Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Brian Jensen

Best mate at the club? Scott Shearer. We have a good re­la­tion­ship and we’re al­ways jok­ing around, but when it comes down to the train­ing it’s very se­ri­ous – we do work hard. It’s the old goal­keep­ers’ union, which is still go­ing strong!

Big­gest laugh? There are quite a few jok­ers at the club, like Scott Shearer and Lee Collins, and we like to take the mick out of Jack Thomas. It’s not that bad be­cause he’s lo­cal and the fans’ favourite! He’s just com­ing back from in­jury now, which is good.

Worst dressed? James Bax­en­dale comes into train­ing with some aw­ful gear, but the cap­tain, Lee Collins, is bad too. It’s not of­ten you see cuffed jeans, the ones with the elas­tic at the bottom, and a tank top at the same time.

Dress­ing room DJ? I pick the tunes th­ese days, mainly feel­good mu­sic, but I try to get dif­fer­ent styles and ask peo­ple what they want to hear. Nicky Hunt used to do it, but he left last year and, as I had sim­i­lar tunes to him, I ended up tak­ing it on.

Late for train­ing? Matt Green, no ques­tion. You can count on him be­ing very gen­er­ous re­gard­ing the late fines. His time-keep­ing is bad. If we are in for ten, he’s there for 9.59am but it back­fires quite a lot.

Teacher’s pet? Mitch Rose, be­cause of his fa­mous brother, Danny, at Tot­ten­ham. He’s the pet that the gaffer al­ways looks to nurse. You can see he’s got his arm around him all the time, but it’s all good ban­ter from the guys.

First on the dance floor? There are not many rush­ing up there, to be fair. I imag­ine Ash­ley Hem­mings would be up there quite quickly though. The rest of us con­cen­trate on stand­ing at the bar if we do man­age to go out.

Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? I don’t think there’s any­body here. We are pretty good and I could not say any one per­son from what I have seen. We may stay out late, but I have never seen any­one em­bar­rass­ing them­selves.

Worst tat­too? Ge­orge Taft did have some­thing on his arm, which was so bad he had it erased. He doesn’t re­ally speak about what it was and I haven’t had the courage to ask him yet!

Par­tial to a sunbed? Nicky Hunt, when he was here, and mid­fielder Jamie McGuire both like a sun bed. They came in ab­so­lutely red as lobsters once last year.

Go­ing to make the best man­ager? That’s a tough one. Lee Collins has a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence, but I don’t think he wants to go into man­age­ment. Ke­van Hurst would be a bet­ter bet, with his ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of the game. I would have to ad­mit ‘never say never’ for my­self, but I am def­i­nitely con­cen­trat­ing on my goal­keep­ing at the mo­ment.
