Lions Legends

Legend number 1; Matt Gregory

Known affectionately as ” Goose” Matt played in our 1st ever season at centre back and achieved the label of legend by being the only Christian player ever sent off for foul and abusive language!!!! That’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 2; Ash Mason

Once scored and incredible 2 own goals whilst deputising in goal versus Monyhull FC by pushing the ball in from seemingly impossible angles both times……that’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 3; Sam Overfield

Proloific goal scorer Sam achieves legend status courtesy of being the only player to score two hat tricks……..then not turn up for the following game on BOTH occasions…..that’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 4; Kyran Rose

Kyran achieves legend status by being, not only our youngest ever debutant, but by being the West Midlands Christian Leagues youngest debutant at the age of 16 years and 3 days old….all together now…AWWWWWWW.. That’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 5; Steve ‘The Ghost’ Rose

The gaffer achieves the status of legend for the exact opposite of his son Kyran, by being the OLDEST debutant in Cup competition for the WMCFL…..that’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend(s) number 6; The Cartwrights

The Cartwright Triplets achieve legend status by being the first same surnamed trio to appear on the pitch at the same time. Although not related (wel, two are!!) it is still a WMCFL record. That’s why they are Lions Legends

Legend number 7; Stef Broome

Stef achieved legend status by watching his opponent score from a corner with a free header, then state he wasn’t responsible due to him thinking we were ‘zonal’ marking!!! That’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 8; Darrell Boden

Daz achieves legend status by confusing Austria with Australia and wanting to fight Kangaroos whilst on tour…….of AUSTRIA!! That’s why he is a Lions Legend

Legend number 9; Kyran Rose

Second award ¬†for ‘Big Tonk’ due to him being the only player to finish 2 consecutive seasons with a minus one goal scoring record, having scored the vital second own goal in the LAST game of the 2014/15 season. That’s why he is a Lions Legend

The above list is based purely on good old fashioned banter, and nothing malicious is meant. If you guys think we can add to this list, and can give me a good reason why, just email the details to me and I’ll post it on here.

God bless
