Davin Shepherd

Davin made a dodgy start to his old boys career, getting sent off in one of his first appearances for two bookable offences. Since then, the appearances mounted up along with the bookings, usually for either a late tackle (after the ball has gone), or a very late tackle (after the ball, players, supporters, and tea ladies had gone and the grounds man was locking up).

His goal scoring used to be a running joke until he broke his duck in the penultimate game of season 2000/1, then following it up a week later with a screamer from the edge of the box against champions elect Pyrford. A Tottenham fan from birth, as a result Davin noticed the unimportant things in the game, such as once being handed the substitutes shirt but being overjoyed because it was the same number as the then Tottenham hero, David Ginola.

Reduced to occasional old boys appearances after a job move to sunny Geneva, the usual burping, farting, dressed like a tramp Davin became a new man since meeting his wife, so has now become a burping, farting Davin dressed like a Barbie doll. Davin also previously worked for UEFA which proved useful in planning for when the Old Boys qualified for the Champions League.
