team mates

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - Mark El­lis - Carlisle United de­fender

Best mate at the club? That’s a dif­fi­cult one, I’m not sure who I’d go for! There are a few of the lads who I get on re­ally well with to be fair, but I’d say Char­lie Wyke. We of­ten share rooms when we have away games. He loves mess­ing about, get­ting me in a head­lock – he’s a big strong lad, he likes a good mess around. He’s a big kid re­ally! But he’s a good lad. Last to buy din­ner? If you asked the ma­jor­ity of the lads, they’d prob­a­bly say me! I just take my time, I don’t give any­thing un­til I am asked for it. There could be a few more though – I’d prob­a­bly say Luke Joyce is an­other one – he likes a cheap meal and he loves a happy hour. Worst dressed? I’d go for Reg­gie Lambe. Some of the shoes he comes in with – the lads have got on his back a cou­ple of times about it for some of the shoes he wears. Some­times you think ‘wow, what are they, where have you got those from?’ Dress­ing room DJ? We have Mark Gille­spie the goal­keeper as DJ. He’s the one who puts the dif­fer­ent col­lec­tions to­gether so the lads are happy with it. He puts every­thing on – there are a few dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of songs on too, the lads are happy with that so we can’t ham­mer him too much. Teacher’s pet? I wouldn’t say there’s any­one who’s like ‘yes boss, yes boss’, but I’d say Nicky Adams – the lads get on to him that he’s the gaffer’s son and things like that. They wind him up on Twit­ter quite a lot, there was one re­cently where some­one took a photo of him get­ting the gaffer a cup of tea – if you have a look on my pro­file I’ve retweeted that one! First on the dance floor? I’d go for Michael Raynes or Sean Bris­ley, but prob­a­bly Michael. Michael likes to think he’s got moves – he’s a big strong cen­tre-half who fan­cies him­self a bit as a dancer. He tends to get go­ing with the tunes as well be­fore warm ups and games. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? I didn’t go this year, so I couldn’t tell you about this year’s one. There are a few sto­ries, but I prob­a­bly wouldn’t re­peat them! I couldn’t give too much away. But maybe Char­lie Wyke again, he is a bit of a livewire and messes around quite a bit. Worst tat­too? Nicky Adams has a few, but they’re not bad to be fair, but I’m not a tat­too man so I would not have any. I can’t re­ally think of too many oth­ers. Again, I think Char­lie Wyke has one, but I think in a place where we can’t re­ally say. It’s not ap­pro­pri­ate! Par­tial to a sunbed? I’d say Mike Jones – I think he fan­cies a good sunbed. It’s been men­tioned a cou­ple of times – the lads have said, ‘have you been on a sunbed Mike?’ I’m not sure if he’s ever ad­mit­ted to it or not. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? I’d say the best man­ager would be cap­tain Danny Grainger. He’s the skip­per and he makes him­self heard on and off the pitch. He’s al­ways on to the lads to do things right.
