Oddly, I'm not sure we've ever had one of these, have we? OK, here's one to kick it off:

My boy just asked me who's played for the most clubs, so I asked the internet. Now the answer might not be definitive across world football at all levels, and it does carry the rider that while he was on the books of 29 clubs, he only actually turned out for 20. He only ever played in England and Scotland.

Without looking it up, can anyone tell me who it is?

Fola?

Not even close. Small clue with each wrong answer. He played in the Prem.

Does it include loan moves? If so Trevor Benjamin is well known for racking up a serious number of clubs

Ooh good effort, just clawed off the line. He's apparently second!

Another storming performance: he comes in equal third with sixteen.

Remember the winner didn't appear at several of the clubs he signed for...

Actually I shouldn't have shot you down for Fola. Apparently 20 clubs including lots of non-league, which puts him well up there.

The winner played across four decades!

Dave beasant?

Only 16 apparently.

The winner has a tenuous link to Siouxsie and the Banshees.
