There was no game for Huntingdon Town Ladies FC today. So, unable to do my usual factual and totally unbiased match report for the website I thought I would update the player bio section. But then I thought producing unofficial bios would be far more fun. So here is a brief low down on the wonderful bunch at HTLFC.
Rachael Bowd (aka Bowdy , Le Bowd or Farm Girl)
Captain Bowd sets a good example by always turning up to training in perfectly colour coordinated clothing.
That’ll be me. Spends too much time chatting to the spectators and forgets to play football, especially when in goal.
Would rather be in Starbucks than on the footy pitch. Abi came back from Oz to play for us, among other, less important things, like love.
Silent but deadly. Emma doesn’t speak much but when she does her voice is surprisingly posh.
Hollie Dare (aka Princess)
Essex girl Hollie doesn’t like to get her nails dirty. Only ever scores worldies.
Stephanie Day (aka Stef)
Winner of the 2011-12 Most Improved Behaviour Award. Stef doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
Natasha Dowdell (aka Tash)
Tash gave up a career in Tesco to become a teacher. Every little helps.
Sian is one of the reasons we wear shin pads at training. If she shoots, get out of the way!
So tiny she can run through the oppositions legs without them noticing.
Kathleen Hodgson (aka The Cat)
She is a Kat that keeps chickens. Kat holds good barbecues….just don’t tell the chickens.
Helen Jenner (aka Jenner or Dr J)
Keeper of the first aid kit, we often have to remind Dr J that she is not a real doctor. Says ‘Good God’ when shocked, which seems to be quite often around this bunch.
Claire Knox (aka Knoxie)
The West Brom whippet. Media favourite, Knoxie, just can’t keep out of the papers.
Super Spurs fan. If there was an award for most neatly packed kit bag, Sophie would win hands down.
Jo McGoff (aka Bethjo)
Looks just like her twin, Beth. Wears yellow boots and plays in goal so we know it is Jo.
Beth McGoff (aka Jobeth)
Looks just like her twin, Jo. Plays on the pitch and doesn’t wear yellow boots so we know it is Beth.
Laura Melling (aka Lemming)
Terrifies opposition with her tendency to stamp. She is not a violent player, she just runs really loudly! Has made two ‘almost assists’ this season.
Claire Radford (aka Radders)
Sleeps most of the time but if she happens to be awake on a Sunday afternoon she is a pretty nifty player.
Megan’s legs have a mind of their own. She does tricks so complicated; even Megan doesn’t know how she did them.
Barbara Williams (aka Babs)
An actual power house, Babs is the other reason we wear shin pads at training.
Karen defies the laws of aging. Would play with a cigarette in her mouth if she could get away with it.
And last, but not least, our manager, Andy Maltby
Calls Lemming ‘Melly’ and no one has the heart to tell him otherwise. He likes to fold bibs.
