Featured Players
                                  Paul McMullen

Age: 28
When did you join the team: March 2009
Preferred position: GK or DM

Which premier league player reflects your style and why?: When in goal, Fabien Barthez, a little eccentric and unorthodox but with ability to pull off a great save or 2. When outfield, Lee Cattermole, limited skill but a tough player who likes a tackle, often upsets opposition players and walks the disciplinary tightrope.

Former Clubs: Hotscots, Heriot Watt University, also played for Exeter Lions, London Falcons, Trowbridge Tigers, Village Manchester & Bexley Invicta in tournaments while at Mersey.

Greatest Mersey Moment: The clean sheet I kept against rivals Village Manchester

Which Mersey Player do you admire most and why?: Darren Eden, because GFSN football is so much more than how many wins you get in a season. He puts 100% effort in on the pitch but is also always the first to welcome new players and socialise with other GFSN teams. He has helped us keep a lot of players and boost our GFSN likability factor.

What club do you support: Everton

What do you do for a living: I'm a promoter for Superstar Boudoir

Relationship status: Single and ready to mingle

Aside from football, what hobbies do you have?: Not many people know this but I actually enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons, I also enjoy socialising, theatre and fine dining when I have the time.

What is your favourite food?: Too many things to choose from but I will say I'm a big meat eater, especially red meat like steaks, beef and lamb... oh and I like my meat rare.

Adrian Olah

Age: 25

Place of Birth:
Zeliezovce, Slovakia

When did you join the team: March, 2016

Preferred position: LW, LM, LWB

Which premier league player reflects your style and why?: Well my idol has always been Steven Gerrard because he's got that all in pack in him which is leadership, technically amazing, fast. But if I have to choose from the current players of the league I would go for Coutinho.. It's because he's very skilful, fast and tiny like me and he proves himself most of the matches.

Former clubs: TJ pri OU Nana (Slovakia)

Greatest Mersey moment: I've not been to the club for very long but one of my greatest moments so far is my debut against Leicester Wildecats which ended 3-3. Hopefully I'll have some more big moments at this club.

Which Mersey player do you admire the most and why? I admire most of them but I guess I've found understanding and link with Joey Challoner. He's got a great talent on the pitch but I would also mention Paul Williams for the hard work he does at this club as a manager also for the great trainings we get every Tuesday.

What club do you support?: Liverpool FC

What do you do for living?: I currently work in Costa coffee as a team leader.

Relationship status: currently single
😂

Aside from football, what hobbies do you have?:
I pretty much like singing and music all the way also mostly just go out clubbing or for drinks with some mates of mine and dance the night away.

What is your favourite food?: As I'm coming from Slovakia (and my mother tongue is Hungarian) my biggest favourite is a Hungarian dish called layered potatoes which includes homemade Hungarian sausages, boiled eggs, sour cream and some Hungarian herbs. Apart from that I love fish and chips and the English breakfast

So there you have it, welcome to the club Adrian. Since this was written Adrian stared in his second outing picking up Mersey Man of the Match for his contributions in the Nottingham 10th Year Anniversary tournament.  





Liam Jennions  


Age: 21

Place of Birth: Liverpool

When did you join Mersey Marauders? May, 2015

Preferred position (on the pitch!): LM/RM

Which Premier League Footballer reflects your style and why?

After due consideration, I’ve decided to go with Peter Crouch. Although I’m not a striker his gangly approach to the game is something I’m confident in saying I bring to the pitch.

Former clubs, if any: Stonewall FC (2nd and 3rd)

Greatest Mersey moment: Haven’t been at the club for long so hopefully there are greater moments to come, but its probably going to have to be winning and scoring the penalty against Yorkshire Terriers a few weeks ago in the Pride Cup.

Which Mersey player do you admire the most and why?

The majority of the people at the club are wankers but if I had to pick one it would be … either Chris Wright or Paul Williams. I picked Chris because he does so much for the club as a player and as a chairman and then Paul because he is the manager and I want to play on Saturday.

What club do you support? Liverpool FC

What do you do for a living?

Graduated this summer and start my first proper job on Monday

 Relationship status: Single

Aside from Football, what hobbies do you have?

I don’t know if they really count as hobbies but the only other things I do besides football is watch excessive amounts of television and drink probably just the right amount of alcohol.

What is your favourite food?

Depending on my mood either Japanese or Indian 


So there you have it, incidentally Liam played 180 minutes at the weekend which goes to show that flattery does sometimes get you places.
