If he could have the footballing skill of any player, he’d go for Pavel Nedved, ” i’ve been a big fan of him ever since i started watching football!”

George can play in numerous positions including right back, centre back or centre midfield, and is a fan of Anfield legend Steven Gerrard.

Liam Flanagan
Centre Forward

Liam works as a painter and decorator and has previously played for Chesterfield.

His favourite moment for selby was “probably scoring 3 goals in the quarter finals against Halifax Town”, as well as scoring the second goal against Tadcaster Albion which put the game out of Tadcaster’s reach, leading to Selby Town progressing to the final of the West Riding County Cup,

Liam is a FIFA player and his favourite player is Javier Hernandez. It is unknown as to whether his FIFA skills are as good as his Selby Town playing career, but he holds the honour of scoring the 3000th goal in Selby Town’s long history, a fantastic achievement.

Liam is a centre forward and wears the number 9 shirt. Both Liam and Joe Dale make a formidable strike partnership with numerous goals between them.

Best moment in a Selby Town shirt was the 3-2 win away at Eccleshill – “it was a really tough game and thought we all worked hard to get the win and it feels great when it’s a close hard fought game, the win Tuesday night was pretty good as well (against Tadcaster Albion in the West Riding County Cup)”.
