Title: Players names that are also places.
Post by: Reg Smeeton on Monday, September 25, 2017, 19:24:07
New signing to be announced shortly.

Yep good heads up. We can now line up with a CB pair of Preston, Lancashire....  :)  a few years back and could have been Blackburn, Lancashire.  A place with 4000 holes, slightly less than our defence.

Add Gordon Atherton for a "red rose" back four

I remember Gordon as a ginger haired wing half, didn't really settle so far south, you could chuck in Matt Heywood....

Don't forget putting in Garry Nelson in midfield.

Frank Warburton inside left.

I'd stick Garry upfront, he scored at a decent rate for Plymuff and Charlton after leaving us.  Leigh Barnard for me in the mid

Nah we have already got Andy Caton to play up front!

Can Gareth Whalley play? I think we all know the answer to that.

I wanted to say Dave Bamber (Bridge)

Bit of local knowledge there... I seem to remember Andy Caton playing with Paul Ince. Could we do a whole team of historic Lancashire... Tom Heaton in goal

                    Heaton

Blackburn, Preston, Lancashire, Heywood

        Ince, Atherton, Whalley

      Caton, Nelson, Warburton.

  I'd like a more recent player than Frank Warburton as I remember all the others.

Michael (Red) Rose on the bench.

Yeah, I know, but he was born in Salford.  :-[

Beswetherick should be in lance but it's not

For some reason I always thought that sounded Cornish... maybe to do with his years at Argyle.  Harland sounds Lancs but isn't.

Blackburn, Preston, Lancashire, Heywood

      Caton, Nelson, Warburton.

I was about to pick you up there Reginald until I noticed the 'historic'....

On a side note on the photo of Preston with the scarf heís at a golf course, so assume thatís Highworth. Looks pretty well maintained and the flags are in the holes, is Power using it as his own private golf course?

Here's a puzzler, why should it be that we can find an XI of Lancastrian place names, but next to none for Yorkshire  :hmmm:

Do you mean just ex Swindon (or current) or just across the board Reg?

Got to have played for the Town at some level.

We obviously also have a decent chunk of a local XI with Stroud (x2), Comyn-Platt, Walcott if you stretch some level quite a bit...


Title: Re: Players names that are also places.
Post by: bamboonoshoe on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 12:37:39
Fair. I bet we can muster a cake XI. Parkin being the first one to spring to mind  :)

Andy Ford

Roy Compton

Charlie Austin (Texas). Also enters the same name as a car category, along with Maurice Owen, but sadly no cake entrants, Unless the current red card chasing James Dunne (dee) qualifies.

Back in the real world, got to include Ray Baverstock and Paul Benson. Austin Berkley should also feature and surely a pairing of Roy Compton and Joey Beauchamp is too good to miss.... Compton Beauchamp. Dick Coates, fits and must be others to go with Keith East besides Alf Dean, East Dean being the Hants side of Sarum. Silly me, that'll be East Knoyle.

Tommy Langford gets in... struggling for a keeper atm

Hay Layne, isn't technically a place, unless you're a pikey

Sorted... Steve Mildenhall  :)

So something like this....

                                                                Mildenhall
                                              Baverstock, Stroud, Comyn-Platt, Berkley
                                                   East,  Knoyle   Compton, Beauchamp
                                                               Hay Layne

No place for 'Alton' Bobby Barnes? Alan 'Marston' Maisey?

Had we fielded an Alton or a Marston, they'd have been in.

A  Sweatie XI may be viable....

Reckon you'd have to expand it to include wider connections like Sammy Burton and Jimmy Glass.
