Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Dar­ren Prat­ley

Best mate at the club? At the mo­ment, it is prob­a­bly Cal­lum Spooner. We have both been in­jured, so we spent a lot of time to­gether try­ing to get back to fit­ness. When I get fit, it could change! Last to buy din­ner? That would be Chris Tay­lor. One of the phys­ios left a cou­ple of weeks ago and we all had to put £20 in. I had to pay for him at the time and he has not paid it back! I am go­ing to hunt him down! Worst dressed at the club? Easy, Liam Trot­ter. Some of the stuff he wears is very out there. He should be a man­nequin in Top­man or one of those shops. He wears hats. I mean you know what the weather is like in Bolton. What is he ex­pect­ing? Dress­ing room DJ? Mark Davies likes to put on his mu­sic. He has a cou­ple of mixes and likes to take con­trol, but then he is in­jured now, so he needs re­plac­ing! He likes hip-hop and R’n’B, which a lot of the lads like. Late for train­ing? That used to be Kaiyne Wool­ery be­fore he left for Wigan Ath­letic, but I think the boys are quite good in gen­eral at Bolton. We have fines for any­one who is late, so ev­ery­one is now mak­ing sure they are on time! I have al­ways tried to stick to that pol­icy – and I don’t like los­ing money! Teacher’s pet? That would be Jay Spear­ing. He is the new gaffer’s (Phil Parkin­son) pet! Him and the gaffer are good pals and so, be­hind his back, he prob­a­bly gets a lot of stick. He is in great form and has won a few player-of-the­month awards, so it is work­ing out for him. First on the dance floor? That is Liam Trot­ter again and, to be fair to him, he is very good! He has got some moves when­ever we are out. Once I have a few drinks, I like to get up. I need a bit of Dutch courage, but I do get up and have a go. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Last year, it was Max Clay­ton – he was home by 12! It was his first Christ­mas party with the boys and he drank a lit­tle bit too much. We usu­ally do a pretty big one for Christ­mas and go to Dublin for two days, but I think there are about 20 teams out there when we are plan­ning to go, so we can’t get a ho­tel this year. I think we will go to London for two days, so Max can get home on the train! Worst tat­too? Gary Ma­dine has some weird ones. He has a tur­tle one, a Tom Hardy one, a Leonardo di Caprio one – even a Floyd May­weather one. Par­tial to a sunbed? That used to be Chris Ea­gles be­fore he left. But it is prob­a­bly Gary Ma­dine again. He gets his eye­brows done ev­ery week. He is a pretty boy, or at least thinks he is. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? I think Jay Spear­ing would be good. Ei­ther him or Lewis Bux­ton – he seems quite clever. Coach­ing is not some­thing I want to do, so rule me out, but Jay and Lewis would be good.
