Now lets have a bit of fun after all the doom and gloom recently.
Who would be in your top six defenders of all time at BUFC
Here are mine,
Paul Ellander,
Steve Thompson
Paul Shirtlif
Rene Steer
Shaun Pearson
Zak Mills.

Please don't criticize peoples choices, these are just personal choices, it will be interesting to see what names pop up from the past.

In my day, Martin Hardy, Gregg Fee, Paul Casey, Paul Shirtlif.
Later, Stewart Balmer, Paul Ellander, Rene Steer, Pidge, Zak Mills.

No doubt by the time this is read, I could add more.

He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

In nearly 50 years of watching Worksop Phil "The Animal" Annable & Martin Hardy is my favourite centre half pairing we have had.

Last season I saw an Annable in goal for AFC Retford, I was told it was Phil Annable's nephew.
