The Tortugan Pirates

Long gone the days when a football team would be littered with boys from the local area and owned by fully committed likely lads. English teams flirted with overseas players with some exceptions to mostly dire performers who failed to hit the high note.

He was supposed to bring us football fans a taste of foreign flair but all…
