Team mates

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - Stu­art Nelson

Best mate at the club? It was Cody McDon­ald – we trav­elled in to­gether over the last few years but he went to Wim­ble­don this sum­mer – and Josh Wright was a good pal be­fore he left for Southend. Now those two have gone, there’s no-one in par­tic­u­lar – we get on well as a squad. Last to buy din­ner? Scott Wagstaff al­ways shouts “card roulette” to see if any­one jumps in. You all stick your card into a hat and you get the waiter to draw one out – that per­son pays. I have seen him lose, so it works out. I haven’t lost on it yet ei­ther. Worst dressed? Jake Hessen­thaler wears the same pair of jeans four times-aweek, ev­ery week. I think he sits by the wash­ing ma­chine and waits for them to come out to put them back on again. He also has a pair which are cut off at the bot­tom, so he looks a bit like a pi­rate. A few times al­ready, Max Eh­mer has whipped out this ma­roon track­suit and he’s been wear­ing it with the same colour t-shirt. Maybe I am just be­hind the times. Dressing room DJ? Max Eh­mer took it off me last year. He was good at it at the start but when the games came thick and fast – twice a week – I think he found it hard work and the nov­elty wore off. He kept play­ing the same playlist and peo­ple knew what songs were com­ing next. I was good at mix­ing it up and up­dat­ing it. No com­plaints on the mu­sic but he couldn’t keep up. Late for train­ing? Jake Hessen­thaler is al­ways check­ing his fringe is right, so he al­ways cuts it fine. We went out re­cently and said ev­ery time he touched his fringe, he had to have a drink. He lit­er­ally does it ev­ery two min­utes. Teacher’s pet? Prob­a­bly me. Mainly be­cause I’m a bit of a per­fec­tion­ist and won’t ever cut a cor­ner. If we must do three sets of ten reps in the gym, I make sure I do it! I call it be­ing pro­fes­sional but others would call me busy! First on the dance­floor? Last Christ­mas, we were at Win­ter Won­der­land in Hyde Park and we were all in fancy dress, and the boys couldn’t wait to get up there. We had the Cookie Mon­ster (Aaron Mor­ris), a rab­bit (Lee Martin), a go­rilla (Max Eh­mer), and a soggy camel (Scott Wagstaff). The camel was like a school panto cos­tume but it had no vol­ume and looked saggy. Waggy was gut­ted. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Xmas party? We have a good group of lads, so not many dis­grace them­selves. The worst would be the ones who don’t last the dis­tance and go home early. Not go­ing to name names on that one – they know who they are! Worst tat­too? Max Eh­mer has ‘pride’ on one thigh and ‘glory’ on the other. He openly ad­mits he copied it from Mar­cos Rojo. He came for me when he did this fea­ture in your pa­per, so this is a bit of re­venge. They would look al­right but he copied a Man United player and the tan line from his shorts runs straight through them. Who will make the best man­ager? Lee Martin has the lead­er­ship but also teacup smash­ing at half-time. I think there is still a place for that, so he will do well.
