48 hours Posted November 12, 2011 Share Posted November 12, 2011 Okay, we have all said this about a player at one time or another - OR have had someone rambling on about someone they saw playing for Uttoxeter FC that made Cruyff look like Mickey Mouse. To try and cut a long story short, I used to work in a large office block in Southend-on-mud. The head of my department used to play for Chester Nomads in his younger days - and I used to play for Crewe Nomads. (No home ground - all games played 'away'). He knew that I kept an eye out for talented players coming thru at Crewe, and as I went to get into the lift one Friday afternoon - he was in the lift with another person that I had not seen before. The conversation went something along the lines of "any good players for me to look out for at Crewe?" to which I replied yes, there is a young lad called Danny Murphy who is coming thru - and another player who looks interesting is Seth Johnson ... ... at this point the third person in the lift turned to me and said "He'll play for England one day!". I was somewhat taken aback, but he carried on by saying "Seth used to play with my son in a 5-a-side team that I used to run- we used to win everything!". He explained that (the real) DarioG came down to Dawlish (I think?) to do some scouting. He wanted his son and Seth to have a trial - but he didn't want his son playing too much football at such a young age, but Seth signed-up ... Anyone else had a similar experience ?
