Colin Thornton








Playing in several positions, usually at the same time, 'Chopper' Thornton is our own-goal specialist, his finest when he beat three opponents and Roger (in goal) in the Croydon Strikers game.

He is known far and wide for his back kicks, which occasionally reach a team-mate.

Colin plays football for enjoyment, exercise, and to escape from his wife and increasing number of children.

When asked about Colin, even Jimmy Hill once said "who ?".
