|Lee Dobinson (Manager) |
Lee was born in April in Balham. He will not state his
age or weight, saying he is a bit of a lump at the moment, but he is 6 feet tall. Nicknamed Dobo, his former club's are
Sinatra's, Boogie Lounge, Chicago's and New York New York! His past and present heroes are Peter Osgood, Ron Harris and Joe
Cole. (Guess who he supports!). Orlando is his best holiday place and he just loves Tilly's sandwiches. He doesn't drink as
a rule (!!) but has the odd glass of wine! Battle of Britain is hist best film of all time while Only Fools and Horses is
his best tv offering. The Greatest Hits of Dusty Springfield is the preferred album choice while I wont let the sun go down
on me (don't get him started) and space cowboy (which as a superstition he must dance to when played) are his top singles.
He feels that the whole team are comedians at times and he would share with anyone who got him home safely on tour. His message
to Vale fans is:-
"Let us brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves
that if Raynes Park Vale last a thousand years, men will still say, this was their finest hour and never in any club was so
much owed by so many to so few"!!
|Joel Rogers (Forward & Captain) |
2005/6 stats Appearances 29 Goals 15 (2 pens) Cautions
Aged 26 and born in London, Joel has played for Colchester
United, Sutton United, USL Dunkerque, Carshalton Athletic, Heybridge Swifts and Epsom & Ewell. His past and present heroes
are Maradona and Henry. He supports Arsenal and his best holiday was in Barbados.
He loves Magners cider but states he eats little now.
(Weighing 14 stones and 6 feet 1 inch tall, we find this surprising). Sexy Beast is his favourite movie and Revolver by
The Beatles is his best album. The Riverboat Song by Ocean Colour Scene is his preferred single. He says that nobody makes him laugh at the club and that he would never share a tour room with Ed Cornwell
(who would?). Joel is a centre forward and organises the midweek coaching at the club.

"Eddo" was born in Colchester in 1976. He is 6 feet 5 inches
tall and weighs 15 stones. Vale is his first senior club where his current hero is Matt Grout. His favourite player is Joel
Rogers (ex Colchester United) and, not surprisingly he supports Colchester United. Newquay is his favourite holiday place
whilst Chinese food and Guinness are his favourite "downloads". The Godfather II is his best film but he says there are too
many albums and singles to choose from. He is superstitious about fat girls (bless) and he cites Darren Dobinson as his favourite
comedian at the club. He would share with Joe Loyza on tour and his message to Vale fans is....Tell him not to worry!!

"Tino" was born in Durban (SA) in 1979 and he is 1.8 metres
high and weighs 81kgs!! (What's that in real money?). His previous clubs are Manning Rangers and Amazulu FC (SA). The divine
pony-tail (Roberto Baggio) was his boyhood hero while Christiano Ronaldo is his current "god". He supports Manchester United.
Miami is his favourite holiday place while Braai and Biltong are his favourite food (!). He drinks snakebite. Favourite films
are Old School and Anchorman whilst he downloads lots of music from the internet (unless "Internet Downloads" is the name
of some obscure band). World Hold On by Bob Sinclair is his favourite single. Eddo is the club comedian but he wouldn't share
a room on tour with him. His message to Vale fans is "Come on down and make your voices heard. Nothing like a good crowd to
play in front of". (And we have nothing like a good crowd eh?)!
