Andy Given

Striker who only needs some upper body strength (or a course of steroids) to make a real impact. Knows where the net is .... and doesn't need to be told twice to take it down after games, unlike some of his team mates. A Burnley fan, he has played for the second and third teams but in 2008-09 he broke into the First Team and staked a regular place. He played with the Second Team in 2002-2003 season and scored regularly until he hit a post, with his wrist...breaking it. Won the Third Team's Player of the Year Award in 2002-03. Once turned up for a game against Bedians away with two left boots....and tried to put them on! Leading scorer in the Second Team in 2004-05 and joint leading goalscorer in 2005-06. Second Team Leading Scorer again in 2006-07. Can be a genius at times. Left Mellor to join Cheadle Hulme Villa mid season in 2009-10. Nickname: Given. DoB 8.3.84.


Paul Goodwin

Good feet, good vision, he is now working on his overall fitness. Rather than think stamina is a dog food he has developed good all round durability. A third teamer - often Man of the Match - he could go higher if he pushed himself. A rather nifty goalie too, in a crisis. Claims to have set an all-time club record in 2002-03 by playing in every position on the field. Manager's Player of the Year for the Third Team 2004-05. People say he bears an uncanny resemblance to Nick Cotton out of EastEnders. Click on his face and see if you agree. Nickname: Podge. DoB 20.4.82


Marc Green

Fourth team keeper, who joined Mellor at the start of 2004-05 season. Agile, good shot stopper and not afraid to come out. Made three excellent saves in Mellor's 0-1 Hellawell Shield Final defeat in May 2005. Started the 2005-06 season between the posts for the Second Team. Manager's Player of the Year for the Fourth Team in 2004-05. Returned after a two year spell away from 11-a-side football to play in a friendly for the Seconds at the start of the 2012-13 campaign. DoB 28.4.84

Des Hinks

Played mainly for the Thirds in 2006-07. A clever central midfielder with an eye for a through pass.

Ken Guest

Made his debut for the Thirds v Parrs Wood in September 2007. An agile keeper who inspires confidence in his defenders. A member of the victorious Whitehead Cup winning side of 2008-09.


Chris Hanson

Strong central midfielder who joined the club with the under 17s at the start of 2006-07 season. He has also appeared in the Second Team.

Paul Hawkins

Forth team full back.

Adam Holmes


A strong running forward who joined Mellor in 2005-06 and became part of the newly formed Fifth team. He re-joined the club in 2007-2008 season, playing for the Fifths as a powerful striker with a superb attitude. Has great ball control when running with the ball and has tonnes of determination. Never lets his head go down so will always get you a goal. Nickname Sherlock.


Rory Harrison

First team squad member in 2002-03, who plays at wing back or midfield. Good technique, quick feet and an excellent turn of pace. Came on as a sub in the Stockport Senior Cup Final and made a big impression. Sadly he was sent off near the end of the SSC semi-final and spent the first five weeks of the 2003-04 season as a spectator. Claims to have Welsh ancestry, which has prompted some rather unsavoury farmyard impressions from colleagues. Played 2003-04 for his pal Ryan in the fourth team and followed him to the thirds in the following season. Nickname: Rors. DoB 9.6.84


Danny Hayes

Mellor's Wayne Rooney, an all-action right-side, left-side or central midfielder who seems to brush aside opponents twice his size. After impressing in pre-season training he started his career in open age football in the second team in 2002-2003 season. Great stamina, electric pace, all he needs is experience, a little more steadiness near goal and a Friday night curfew to keep him out of the pub! His mum's on the case. Second Team's (joint) Player of the Year 2002-03 but managed to leave his trophy in the manager's car for five months! Nickname: Danny. DoB 20.6.85.
