Meant to post this last week as I think it is a belter. Certainly a team filled with good footballers.

This appeared in last weeks Courier

Jock - it takes a LOT of talent to wear a bowl cut in such a stylish fashion :oops: I'll be having severe words with my mother the next time I'm home :D

Ringmaster - have you still got that jumper? :lol:

My strip still fits me :roll: :lol:
