    Hughes has got strong OIHSP company at Mickleover, who are managed by ex Doncaster Rovers and Burton Albion midfielder John McGrath, himself a substitue yesterday. Pablo Mills (Derby, Rotherham, Crawley, Bury) is there, as too is Stuart Beavon (Wycombe, Preston, Burton, Coventry) and Ricky Ravenhill (Doncaster, Darlington, Notts County, Bradford).

    Yes, I deleted it and dispensed with the 'lost some timber' dig. Without figuring out how to shrink the photo I thought it best not to launch fresh nightmares, just when you'd got over Barry Hayles.

    Did you delete that photo of McGleish, it? Or is a firewall protecting me from revisiting the horror?

    Simon Royce was on the bench for Gillingham during their last league game. He's 48.

    Last mentioned on this thread (I believe) in January 2016, Scott McGleish is on the bench tonight for Hendon, and has played one Cup game this season. He's 45, and 18 months older than Jamie Cureton.

    Yep, Whelan's going on 36 but probably our best player last night.

    37-year-old former most-of-the-third-tier striker Bas Savage was leading the line for 10th tier Lewisham Borough last night, and scored the opening goal in their 4-1 win from the penalty spot. his Wikipedia entry tails off after he moved to Thailand in 2012, so not sure where he's arrived from.

    He's the best, most consistent free kick taker I can remember seeing in the flesh (Nakamura). Though Moravcik just before him at Sellick was also uncanny on the deid ba'.

    Shunsuke Nakamura joins Yokohama FC at the age of 41, and isn't even the oldest player there, by some distance too...

    Pfff. I played Bezirksliga - once - at his age.

    I saw Barry Hayles (now 46) play for Windsor at Lydney on Good Friday. He didn't play very well, which was something he had in common with his team mates.

    Actually, Juan of Flamengo is not still playing.

    He made his final appearance tonight at the age of 40, coming on as a late substitute in Flamengo's win against Cruzeiro. He started his career at Flamengo and played at Bayer Leverkusen, Roma and Internacional before returning to Flamengo in 2016. He made 78 appearances for Brazil including the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.

    The above post has led me to realise that this Friday is the ninth anniversary of this thread starting. Major plans will have to put in place to commemorate it's decade in 2020.

    38 next month, so well worthy of his place on this thread.

    According to wiki he's managed 23 goals in 25 games so far this season too!

    It's not so much that I'm surprised he's still playing, but I am absolutely amazed that Honved's David N'Gog still has a week to go until he turns 30. He was yesterday's man yesterday, in my mind's eye he should be about 36.
