Defender

Tony Moscrop

Mozza was one of the men responsible for the creation of the Old Boys. A stalwart player at college, he helped create a club so great that he eventually lost his place in the team. Subsequently, he became the reserves beloved skipper, a position in which he undoubtedly lead by example – he had the worst disciplinary record, the worst goal scoring record, and the lowest completed passes ratio. However, his team talks were inspirational, usually referring to how bad the oppo are, followed by how much worse we are, also pointing out that the referee “will not stand for any backchat”, which usually guaranteed an early bath for the skipper for said backchat.

After having decided to retire from the captaincy, no doubt disappointed at the reserves underachievement (similar to his beloved West Ham), Tony found a role in one of the teams, either as a cultured defender (with the ability to produce the most spectacular foul or get sent off for dissent) or as an all action midfielder (with the ability to produce the most spectacular foul or get sent off for dissent). Tony missed much of his later seasons due to suspension for a huge number of bookings, however he was also part of the organisation that produced the memorable boat party at the end of the 2003/4 season. Since retirement, he has progressed far in the business world and was last seen in a ridiculously large house in Jersey.
