Loyalty amongst players at any level of football appears to be a thing of the past. How refreshing, then, to report that Ramsbottom United of the Evo-Stik League Division One North could field an entire team of players who have all completed more than 100 appearances for the side.

Joint-player-managers, Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson have been in charge since the summer of 2009 and now winger Phil Dean is on 203 appearances (162 + 41 subs), midfield dynamo Joel Pilkington has turned out 191 times (176 + 15), influential skipper Andy Dawson 176 (172 + 4), and raiding winger Dominic Smalley 170 (141 + 29). Legendary striking duo Jon Robinson has notched 157 appearances (143 + 14) and Lee Gaskell 148 (121 + 27). Reliable keeper Grant Shenton can count 152 games (151 + 1), whilst the management duo have taken to the field 275 times between them, Bernard Morley 148 (135 + 13), and Anthony Johnson 127 (104 + 23).

Completing the line-up are competitive defender Danny Warrender with 108 appearances and midfielder Grant Spencer 101 (88 + 13). On the bench, and fast approaching the magical three figure number are towering, but currently injured defender Ian Flannery 93 (90 + 3) and influential midfielder Gary Stopforth with 87 (86 + 1), and both could finish the season by also passing the 100 mark
