Name: Stephen Tipton
Nickname: Tippy or Tipsy or Gaffer
Current Position: Manager / Centre Back
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Crystal Palace FC

Steve has taken over the managers postion at the club from 2014 adding youth back into the setup.

Name: Dan Nuthall
Nickname: Nuts
Current Position: Centre Back
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Crystal Palace FC

Has been with the club for some time and played in nearly all the positions starting with the Goalkeeper position. Dan's style of football is likened to a German, resilient, methodical, immune to pain and just keeps going (robot like) till the final whistle. One of the original members of the "breakfast club". That group of Lane’s players who used to turn up straight from the nightclub and still played very well. 2013/2014 skipper so has tried to take the moodiness out of his game without success, so you can always hearing moaning at someone! Has an engine that keeps on going but off the pitch can often be seen behind the decks or getting in the slammers at the bar.

Name: Martyn Brady
Nickname: Slim Brady
Current Position: Right Wing / Striker
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Manchester United

A long serving player of AFC Lanes and by far the best crosser of the ball in the team. Played for Lanes for most of his senior career (except the time he wasn't allowed to by female intervention). Blows hot and cold all season but when he is hot he is amazing! Great finisher and striker of the ball and can use both feet very well but his you will find him AWOL on most of the team nights out, always stating previous engagements. You will however find him amongst the top scorers every season, Cause he's Slim Brady the real Slim Brady, all the other Slim Brady's are just imitating....

Name: Matt Harrington
Nickname: Styles
Current Position: Striker
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Crystal Palace FC

Matt is a very skilful player, he has the ability to receive the ball at his feet and beat anyone. His shooting with both feet is excellent and the only thing letting him down from the perfect player is total relaxed attitude to the game. Nothing is a rush for him and on nights out you can spend hours just waiting, whether it be to finish his drink, to get back from the toilet or to finish chatting to someone. Gift of the gab and gift of football, "dont mention shrinkage."

Name: Dan Murry
Nickname: Danger
Current Position: Midfield
Previous Clubs: ........................................................
Supports: Arsenal FC

Played at the club since he was 17, this is AFC Lanes youth program working well. Now more like a senior player Dan has come back from a season off whilst he was at Uni. His endless amount of energy has given Lanes a new dynamic this year (must be all those snakebites). His touch and finishing has always been on a different level which is good as it makes up for his passing. He is hardcore on a night out and can handle the fast pace in life and on the pitch, all rumours of him not going to bed and coming straight to football are exaggerated.
