comment on the article

Position: Centre midfield or left back
Age: 25
Nickname: Cranna, Douggy, Dougal, Silver Fox, Paperboy

Profile: The former paperboy to the Bishop of Southwell is a midfield grafter and going grey. Obviously it was a hard paper round. Being vocal, versatile and possessing good close control he is a victim of his own success and flexibility - Douggy plays in a variety of positions.

The big question is should he dye his hair? Interesting fact: Regularly uses the catch phrase: "A wee dinky"

Star sign: Scorpio
Favourite football player: Super Ally McCoist
Favourite cheese: Drunken Goat Cheese*
Favourite/worst WJAFC moment: 4 goals v Red Star Benwell from left back

* From the village of Jumilla in the Murcia region of Spain, Drunken Goat is a semi-soft artisan goat cheese with a smooth violet rind which has been soaked in Doble Pasta wine for 48-72 hrs. Aged about 75 days, it has a sweet, smooth flavour. This is a very difficult cheese to find.
