Josh Gardner

Nicknamed “Gard Dog” by his work’s football team manager due to his role in the team – providing an extra layer of protection in front of the defence. The role was abandoned after the team conceded twelve goals in four games, including a 3-0 hammering at the hands of the Old Boys. In the post-match assessment of the game, Josh was described by the same team manager as “weary, leggy and cumbersome”, which along with the comment that he “moaned at the ref and shouted at his team-mates” sounded quite familiar. Despite this disappointment, Josh has represented both Old Boys teams, showing a desire to pick out players with Rooneyesque cross-field passes and irritate opponents and referees alike with his very convincing scouser impersonation.
