My First XI- Sean Rudd, Potters Bar Town

Sean brings a second set of Scholars to this series

GK: Ravan Constable - FA cup heroics at Bath City and Barnet in separate seasons and a fantastic shot stopper

RB: Mustapha Dumbuya - Later went on to play professionally and it was no surprise when Doncaster Rovers came calling

CB: Steve Brown – An absolute unit at the back. Ultimately could’ve gone on to play higher but chose Chesham United instead!

CB: George Quarrington-Carter – An absolute rock at the back alongside James Budden who I also considered. So calm and composed and incredibly good for his age. Struggling with injury currently but bags of talent.

LB: Andy Lomas - Every club needs an Andy Lomas! Club man and absolutely loves the club. Engages with the fans and scored an injury time equaliser against National League Barnet to force a replay! Mr Consistent.

RM: Ashley Nathaniel-George - Scary player, skilful player who is quite rightly playing professional at Southend United. I’d pay my entry money just to watch him!

CM: Chris Doyle - another fantastic servant to Potters Bar Town. An absolute engine in midfield and again a top man which goes a long way in non-league.

CM: Lee O’Leary - Leader on the pitch and now manager off it! We even saw a cameo from him recently!

LM: Tom Pett - again another player who went on to make it as a professional. He came out of the youth section at Potters Bar so had to go in the side!

ST: Eoin Casey - Goal machine for Potters Bar! Quality player.

ST: Ben Ward-Cochrane – An absolute live wire up front and a player I genuinely believe will play higher one day if he wants to! Close between him, Michael Murray and Josh Hutchinson.

Right, let’s have your First XI! Email your squad to Ian at and you’ll see it appear here.
