Alex Brown celebrates a goal.

This local manager’s star player was also the most irritating

One of local football’s biggest personalities has selected an all-star team from the men he played with and managed.

Alex Brown was a commanding centre-back with Hotpoint, Eye United (Peterborough Northern Star) and Perkins and went on to manage Eye United, Perkins, Deeping Sports and King’s Cliffe as well as leading Peterborough Sunday Morning League teams LT Athletic and Royal Oak.

Brown said: “This was such a hard thing to do. I’ve been so lucky to have played with so many talented players over the years.

“But I’ve also been very lucky to play against and manage so many players who could all feature in this squad.

“I decided to select a mixture from my time playing and managing in the Peterborough and District League.

“I have changed this squad so many times and could have easily compiled a squad of 40 players!

“I’m not going to insult anyone by naming subs for the team but I would have loved to put at least two players in every position.”
