Name: Barry Handyside
Nickname: Randy, Detol
Current Position: Wing Back
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Chelsea FC

Could have been an ice skater, well if you see him play he does look like he is on ice. Never-the-less this unusual style has a touch of genius about it and often baffles the opposition. He relies on his fitness to get him out of trouble and is very quick down the wings! Barry is Mr Smooth on a night out and tries to bring this to his style of play on the pitch. Watch out for Barry's mad five-minutes which in every match whether it is training or cup final will see the most unusual period of play ever witnessed. Has played for money, so beware this player on his day can play ball.

 

Name: Barry Chambers
Nickname: WIB or Bazza
Best Position: Center Midfield
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Liverpool FC

There is a day in the future when machines will rule the world, at the moment he plays Centre Mid for AFC Lanes. Even a broken arm, at pre-season did not stop this machine. Feared for his always fair but hard tackling and the way he can thread a ball through the eye of a needle, Barry will be part of any great move leading up to the a goal. Greatly missed at the club but hung his boots up around 2004. He started up front with the club and scored shed loads of goals, as he became more built he slowed and used all the muscle for his center-mid role.
