Players’ relations

by SCIAG » 14 Aug 2020 09:29

In response to a suggestion that we sign Trevoh Chalobah on loan, FDTW joked that we go for a whole team of relations of ex-players.

Here’s my attempt:

Nikolay Mihaylov (Son of Boris)

George Baldock (brother of Sam)
Nacho Fernandez (brother of Alex)
Trevoh Chalobah (brother of Nathaniel)
Gilano Wijnaldum (cousin of Royston Drenthe)

Gigi Wijnaldum (ibid)
Juninho Bacuna (brother of Leandro)
Ryan Gravenberch (brother of Denzell)

Theo Walcott (cousin of Jacob)
Rajiv van La Parra (cousin of Drenthe)
Giovanni Drenthe (brother of Royston)

Subs: Simon Moore (brother of Stuart), Jake Forster-Caskey, Tom Soares

All I can say is thank goodness the Dutch footballing community is so small. There surely has to be a better option than Drenthe Jr up front, and using Walcott and Soares is a bit cheeky given their relatives never actually played for us. But no doubt that side would beat us quite comfortably.

Over all time, that team could be even stronger. For example, Rio Ferdinand would stroll in at centre back. And of course we’ve had several related players play for us, like the Hunts, the Millses, the Keowns, the Wagstaffes, Ingimarsson/Thorvaldsson, and of course the Webbs.

Denzell Gravenberch, there's a signing I'd forgotten about. The striker with (still) just two career league goals, and none for six years now.

You need to include Jake Forster- Caskey twice

He was a centre back when he played for us. His brother is by all accounts a much better player.

Fantastic league two relegation side that!

IN for the name.

Sounds like a cross between Kill and Cyril.

Nice one Kirril, nice one son.

Then, of course you could have Neil Webb son of Douglas or if you prefer, Douglas Webb father of Neil.

Yes, you are right. Pity he didn't play for the first team. Three generations playing for the same team, would have be pretty rare, especially if they all made their League debuts for the same club. Pity he was sent out on loan, before he had a chance. Are there any more three generations who have or are playing League football?

Just seen Neil walking down Dark Lane .Our generation use to call his Dad ,Dougie.He was a fan favourite ;albeit we use to give him a fair amount of leeway on his performances.However in those days in the old Div 3 & 4;we didn’t expect much.Was it Dougie who went on to run a Newsagents near Langley Hill or was it Maurice Evans ?

That’s a good shout. Put her in as the centre forward ahead of Drenthe/Pogrebnyak.

Cyril Beavon (Oxford U) father of STuart (Reading) and grandfather of Stuart Jnr (Wycombe) - three generations for players of local rivals.

Think it was Mike Dixon who had the newsagents.
