Aston Villa, and other football teams!
yep Phil Neale was at Lincoln, i believe he had chances to move to other clubs but it would have meant he had to give up cricket.

So who was the third?

(A little clue, he had 3 first names)

Not the answer to the question - but this is my favourite cricketing footballer:
'William “Fatty” Foulke (Derbyshire, Sheffield United, Chelsea and England): William Foulke, owner of the least ambiguous nicknames in the history of sport, was a legendary goalkeeper for Sheffield United and Chelsea, as well as winning one cap for England. Foulke (who, after the 1902 FA Cup Final, chased the referee naked from the changing rooms and into a broom cupboard and had to be dragged away by understandably nervy FA officials) also made several appearances for Derbyshire CCC while playing for Sheffield United.'
There's more about him (and a photo) here - sorry to link to a Chelsea site:

Thanks Windy .Well that's that then.. No more money to spend. I don't' blame MON. He is still a good manager. Although he has his favorite and uses his squad in an unusual way. Shame its just before semi. But who knows?

Well if the rumours about McLeish being hunted by WHU are true Blues could do worse than get MON to take over.
Very surprised though to resign just before a final.

Did Ted Hemsley play for Worcs in the 70's TB?I'm sure he played football for Sheffield Utd & something in my distant memory tells me he was one of the rare breed that played both games :001_smile:

Think you are right there Redditch. Great call :thumbup:

Of course West Ham had 4 players in the mid 60s who also played county cricket so :001_tt2:

Standen played for Worcs. Won the CC, topped the national bowling averages and won the FA Cup all within 7 months in 1964. Another good call.

Other 3 are difficult though one is well known

Yes it was Ted Hemsley.

The West ham 4 Jim Standen, Geoff Hurst plus two i don't know. Hurst only played one first class match, as a wicketkeeper.

I think Moore and Peters may have played for Essex seconds?

Eddie Presland played for Essex and Ron Tindall for Surrey. Hurst didnt get a run.

Hurst is the only first class cricketer to have played in the finals of a soccer world cup, but two other international footballers have played test cricket and in the cricket world cup.

Who were they?

Indeed the great IVA Richards is one.

The other was also a batsman that bowled some off spin.

( I think it's time some children got off the net and did some homework, maybe math as he has trouble with numbers)

I believe the number 7 is much loved by Villa supporters.

I think thats its all a load of baloney. Oneill has spent a lot of money on squad players who rarely get a game. Coker, Sidwell, Shorey (Loaned out) Harewood, Delph, Davies: There alone theres 35 million pound of players. He has to prune the squad and get players in who will feature more regularly.

of course 35 is 7 multiplied by 5
