Adam Jarvis

Fourth team keeper in 2010-11, he's the son of Mellor's greatest ever keeper Phil Jarvis. No pressure then.

Mellor Second team left-back in 2006-07 he also made his First team debut in a friendley against Woodley Reserves in December 2006. had a spell at maine Road Reserves. Plays on the edge, a bit like Wayne Rooney but his commitment is infectious. Scored a vital early penalty in the Rhodes Cup Final win over Cheadle Hulme Villa in May 2012.

Wesley Jubb

Utility player who appeared mainly for the Second team in 2006-07.

Mike Johnson

Excellent clubman, he wasn't fazed when asked to play full-back for the first team in a crisis, after performing all season in the thirds. Seems to win the football card every week. Scored a fantastic winning goal for the second team in a bruising cup tie away at Droylsden in February 2003 when he ran 40 yards to chip the keeper. Will he ever score a better goal? Will anyone? In 2003-04 he became a rock at the heart of the fourth team's defence until a nasty gash on his shin ended his season. Bought a new pair of boots from JJB Sports in March 2005 only to find when he got home that the box contained two left boots.. A dogged defender as you will see by clicking his picture. Nickname: Johnson DoB 20.8.82

 

 

Luke Jubb

Mellor's baby-faced assassin, he is Mellor's longest serving current player. Joined Mellor at the start of 2001-2002 season from Romiley where he had been banging in goals for the third team. He proved equally deadly for our first team, except strangely from the penalty spot. However, his pace and eye for goal are a constant threat. Bagged 29 goals in season 2001-2002 and 28 in 2002-2003. Joint leading first team scorer in 2003-04 with 17 goals. Has the perfect excuse for being in the Romiley Arms on Friday night. He works there! Came on as a sub in the Rhodes Cup Final 2014. Nickname: Jubby. DoB 4.3.84
