Quiz to pass some time

Bit of a quiz, perhaps unbalanced era wise, because I remember sod all about the last 15 or 20 years :roll_eyes:
Most of the answers are easily gettable from a bit of googling I suppose, but have a go without that (pretend it’s still the olden days, like I do all the time :smile:) and I’ll post the answers if needed in a day or two. Just to hopefully pass a little time for some of you.

Justin Skinner


3madd Timms
4. Jermaine Defoe for Bournemouth
6.Howard Pritchard
7. Gerry Sweeney
11.Jamie Patterson
14 Bobby Shinton
That’s a few to get on with

  1. Shinner.

Think Jamie is number 11 not 12.

Slipped up there

I’ll do number 6. Julian Marshall. He wasn’t very good.

Jamie Patterson should be No 11

9 Ian Roper

8 Chester City
20 Jordan Cook
21 None - Jones was the penalty taker that season

  1. Sure one was Rob Steiner, unsure of the other player

Purely a guess, Bjarni Larusson

Is number 3 Mads Timm?

And wasn’t everyones favourite ex PFA Chairman our
RB at Wembley?
