Team mates

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE RESULTS - James McKeown Grimsby Town goal­keeper

Best mate at the club? It would be Shaun Pear­son and Craig Dis­ley. We have been play­ing to­gether for the last six sea­sons. We’ve been to the Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val to­gether and Shaun has his stag do this sum­mer. Hope­fully, that will be good. Last to pay for din­ner? I would have to say Shaun Pear­son again. He is, with­out doubt, the tight­est per­son in the world. If he could save one penny by go­ing to a dif­fer­ent shop then he would do it! Worst dressed? I think my team-mates would nom­i­nate me for this one as I wear shorts and flip-flops most of the year. The goal­keep­ing coach, Andy War­ring­ton, is the worst, though. When he makes an ef­fort – or what he deems to be an ef­fort – he looks like your grandad go­ing to a funeral. But I would def­i­nitely get some stick from the boys for this one. Dress­ing room DJ? Dom Vose does it. He is not bad con­sid­er­ing we have had some ter­ri­ble ones. He puts on a mix for ev­ery­one and no-one com­plains, which is the best seal of ap­proval. I wouldn’t go near it be­cause I don’t think the lads want to lis­ten to James Blunt any­way. Late for train­ing? Josh Gowl­ing. If you have to be in at 10.15, he will rock up at 10:14.59 and, even if he is late, he won’t ad­mit it. He al­ways claims he is up early so I have no idea why he is late. Teacher’s pet? Shaun Pear­son again. We have quite a lot of meet­ings where the gaffer asks ques­tions when we are do­ing anal­y­sis and Shaun will an­swer for the cen­tre-for­wards, the de­fend­ers, ev­ery­one. He is very ea­ger to please, for sure. He bails a few of the other lads out by an­swer­ing for them! First on dance floor? We have quite a few ac­tu­ally and we’ve a cou­ple of re­ally good singers. Sam Jones has the best voice I have ever heard live. We have to sing a song when we first sign and when we have our first overnight stay and he was im­pres­sive. He usu­ally sings some Bob Marley songs and he plays the gui­tar. Most likely to dis­grace him­self at the Christ­mas party? Max Wright is one of the young lads in the squad. He is only 18 and I think he drank for the first time at our party this year. He got thrown out of the night­club. He plays right wing and I have never seen any­one get­ting as touch-tight to fe­males as him. He wasn’t giv­ing them a yard of space. He was ‘man-mark­ing’ and em­bar­rassed him­self! Worst tat­too? When we got pro­moted, our cap­tain Craig Dis­ley said he wanted to get three fish, which is a nice idea be­cause it is on our badge. He got it done and, be­cause ev­ery­one re­spects him, no-one said any­thing but the fish are red for some rea­son – very ques­tion­able. I have thought about get­ting the pro­mo­tion date tat­tooed, but I haven’t got around to it yet. Who will be the best man­ager? I think there are a cou­ple in the squad. Shaun Pear­son be­cause he is very switched on. He watches the games back even on his day off. He would call a lot of meet­ings be­cause he likes talk­ing and An­drew Boyce would be another be­cause he also loves talk­ing.
