Best XI: Gary Humpreys Markerstudy

Footballers protection

Markerstudy group underwriting director Gary Humphreys selects his best XI for an insurance company start-up. The team is made up of the crème de la crème of the industry, with Markerstudy group chief executive Kevin Spencer leading the side to victory.

1. Patrick Swords, (Sabre) (GK)
Nothing will get past wily Tottenham Hotspur fan Pat

2. Barry Smith (Ageas) (RB)
A nippy right back, Barry can read the game well thanks to his European experience

3. Stevie Sutherland (Iceberg) (LB)
Every team needs a Scottish terrier, and Stevie is ours

4. Ian Donaldson (Autonet) (CM)
Expect Ian to roll back the years with his box-to-box guile

5. Dave Kelly (Open GI) (CB)
Tall, elegant and unflustered in possession, Dave is an obvious choice for centre half

6. Richard Harrison (Blink) (CB)
Age moves him ever further back in the team, but Richard is worth his place for sledging alone

7. Mark Cliff (Ageas) (RM)
Mark is Liverpool’s Danish legend Jan Molby in blue

8. Steve McPherson (Call Connection) (CM)
Steve’s effortless vision makes him perfect for the Frank Lampard role in attacking midfield

9. Neil Utley (Hastings) (ST)
The man to score our goals – Neil is the only candidate for the Golden Boot

10. Kevin Spencer (Markerstudy) (ST)
Our captain. Kevin is an inspirational leader whose only strategy is attack

11. Chris Collings (Swinton) (LM)
Chris is guaranteed to be the last man standing thanks to his ageless stamina
