Bithday Playford Players Happy Birthday

Following Rob Bingham's two goals, scored on his birthday, against Bergholt and a throw away comment by Greg Songer that he miust be the only player to score on his birthday got me thinking!

Rob is not the only player to score on their birthday, he does not even have the most goals on his birthday. That record is held by Liam Miller for his hat-trick against Thurlston.

Alex Brunt and Mark Lillistone were the first two players to play on their birthday. Sharing 17th of October, albeit five years apart, they both lined-up against Bucklesham Wanderers in the Cup. They celebrated an impressive 5-1 win.

Delving a little deeper, 14 players have played for Playford on their birthdays but Miller and Bingham remain the only two goalscorers.

The 14 players to play on their birthday: Mark Lillistone & Alex Brunt (2004), Mark Bulstrode & Simon Goldsmith (2005), James MacFarlane (2007), Jem Vince & Ash King (2010), Nick Bingham (2011), Liam Miller & Jack Storey (2013), Sam Reach (2014), Byron Stretton & Ash Symonds (2015) and Rob Bingham (2016).
