3rd Team

Sponsor: The Cage Wine Bar

Manager: Shane Wootton

Age: 39

Appearances: 98

Goals: 3

Position:  Center Defender

Bio: Joining the club in 2014 Shane can only be described as a cultured ball playing center back. More than comfortable with the ball at his feet as he is with a pint in his hand. Wootton most recently guided his 3rd team to promotions from division 3 south in 2018/19 and will now test his team in south 2.  A huge England supporter who will be found travelling home and away supporting his country. 

Josh Crawford

Position: Goalkeeper

Now then. Meet Reigatian’s very own real life northerner. Not only is he great with his hands, he is that rare thing of a keeper that is also good with his feet. Josh has recently ruined his life by getting married

Sam Chapman

Position: Defender

One of three new additions from a locally disbanded club, Sam is a great talker with the talent to go with it. An attacking full back of the Dani Alves variety, he’s working his way to havig the most tatoos in Surrey

Lee Fletcher

Position: Defender

“Fletch” is a commanding centre back who likes to play out from the back. Another talker, he’s unfortunalet that mix of a younger man but looks like a vet. A Man Utd fan, there is a picture of him wearing a Liverpool top!!!

Ed Austin

Position: Defender

A deceptively fast defender, who is comfortable at both centre back and full back. Another who is great in the air and scored on his recent club debut (it’s only pre season so doesn’t count)

James Brickley

Position: Defender

“Brickers” is a club stalwart and multi award winner. A defender in the truest sense, he has the most stylish hair, drinks Doom Bar, and plays cricket when he should be playing football. Is Paul Ince’s doppleganger

Archie Knight

Position: Defender

Another new addition to the club. At time of writing, nobody has seen him play so there is absolutley no idea if he’s any good. We’ve been assured he is though

Sean Pantisful

Position: Defender/Midfielder

Still technically a child I think, now in his third season, Sean is a great attacking wide option with good finsih to boot. He is so young that what’s app is too oudated for him, which makes us all feel old

Luke Brister

Position: Midfield/Attacker

This vet (although only 30), pulls the strings from midfield, with his wand of a left foot and reading of the game. Constantly moans about his feet bleeding after games. Nobody cares though

Sam Carr

Position: Midfield

A rapid rise through the teams, has seen young Sam cement his place in the heart of midfield for the 3’s. Son of a club legend, it’s almost like having Jordy Cruyff playing, with the shadow of Johan loomimg over you.

Marc Ashdown

Position: Right Back

Vice captain and TV celebrity, BBC Marc has numerous winners medals in the trophy cabinet. A quality fotballer, who will be sorely missed once he gets the call up for Celebrity Bake Off or Love Island. Bognor Boy till the end!

Sam Bickerton

Position: Forward

 

Fresh from being the leading goal scorer at the club for 18/19, “Bicko” will bring his all action style and goal scoring to the 3’s this coming season. Will give Brad a run for his money for best hair, and maybe beat Ashdown to appearing on Love Island

 

Shabs Perlesha

Postion: Forward

One of the Reigatians “Albanian Army”, Shabs has great speed, tenacity and a match winning strike. He can also be found hitting the books, or other people (through boxing, not street brawling)

Cris Diaz

Position: Winger

3’s player of the season for 18/19, this portugeezer has great speed, recovery and passing range from full back or on the flanks. He’s often found covering the centre backs mistakes, and mainly being better than his brother
