#120. Sig Hansun, Captain of the MV North Western and star of Discvery Channel's 'Deadliest Catch', when he is not fishing for Alaskan King crab, is a well known face on the Hellenic League ground hopping scene.

Sig just needs Tytherington Rocks to clear Div 1 west, although there is a dispute about Slimbridge as no programme was issued.

Sig was at the now infamous Wokingham v Holyport game where legendary ground hopper 'Barry the Twat' went mental because the game kicked off five minutes early.

122 - Huddersfield Town legend Andy Booth cannot go longer than thirty minutes without eating junk food. During his playing career he used to hide a Mars bar and a packet of crisps down the front of his underpants and then when the action was down at the other end of the pitch he would reach down, grab a handful of food, and shove it quickly into his mouth.

His various managers never caught on to what was happening, but they did notice he had his hands down his shorts a fair bit of the time. Booth always explained this away by saying he was warming his hands. This earned him the nickname Andy 'Coldfinger' Booth.
