Next up for selection is one of the first teams to break out of the Northern Scene, and one of the most important. Despite a short-lived career their distinctive and unique style of play has influenced generations.
Enigmatic front-man who’s career was tragically cut short. Could turn a defence inside out with his deft moves and virtuoso performances on the big stage.
Midfield play-maker who later stepped up to become centre forward when he was called upon to fill Curtis’s boots. Whilst never the prolific goal scorer Curtis was, Sumner compensated with his great link-up play with the rest of the team.
Peter (Hooky) Hook
The heartbeat of the team, Hooky’s distinctive playing style paved the way for the band's later successes.
Stephen Morris Understated and calm, was often called upon when the team seemed a bit ragged during the big games. Always there when required, Morris has always played a pivotal role during crucial periods of play.
Tony Wilson (Coach)
The head coach and their biggest champion, Tony pushed the team to become a force to be reckoned with. Would later go on the manage many teams in his long illustrious career. His copybook was only blotted when he failed to sign up Morrissey and Marr...and The Stone Roses...and Oasis.
