Shearer played for Southampton, Blackburn, Newcastle and England and picked up countless individual awards including the Euro 96 Golden Boot and twice winning the PFA player of the year in 1995 and 1997. Despite his many individual awards Shearer's only team trophy was with Blackburn Rovers when they won the Premiership in  the 1994-95 season.


An all round gentleman and true Legend of the Premier League.

British Seed House at the BTME


The Bigga Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) is Europes leading showcase for turf professional.

Firmly established as Europe's foremost turf care show, this superb event takes place from 22-24 January 2013 at Harrogate International Centre over three vibrant days in which Harrogate, UK, becomes the heart of the turf care industry - meaning unbeatable networking opportunities.

Open times: 9am-5pm Tuesday 22nd & Wednesday 23rd and 9am-4pm Thursday 24th January 2013.


I was contacted by the British Seed House to paint a Subbuteo team featuring their logo. I was very keen on their idea as they wanted to use the team in a penalty shoot-out display for their REAL Grass Subbuteo Pitch. 

The following is an extract from their website:





GRASS ‘SUBBUTEO’ PITCH WILL GIVE BRITISH SEED HOUSES’ BTME STAND AN 
EXTRA ‘KICK’

British Seed Houses is looking to put an extra ‘kick’ into its stand at BTME by staging a penalty shoot-out competition on a Subbuteo-size soccer pitch made up of real grass!

The UK’s largest privately-owned grass seed company is offering 40 kilos of the bentgrass of their choice to the winner of the competition, which will take place over the three days of the show in January.

The pitch is being grown on one of BSH’s cultivars, with timing critical to have it in best condition for ‘the big kick-off’.

“Visitors to our stand, A45 in Hall A, will be invited to take five penalties against their favourite BSH representative. The highest score over the three days will win,” said Richard Brown, Amenity Sales Manager for BSH.

In the event of a tie the names will be put into the BSH BTME Penalty Shoot-Out trophy and the winner drawn from there.

Richard, who is acting as ‘head groundsman’ for the pitch, said: “It’s a labour of love to get the pitch ready. I’m monitoring it regularly and every few days give it a trim with a pair of clippers. “In the meantime, my colleagues have been practising being goalkeeper, with varying degrees of success. No-one has yet shown themselves to be the table football equivalent of Peter Schmeichel or Gordon Banks!”




Here is the team:

Billy 'Cesar' McNeil - Celtic Legend - 1967




Here we have the Celtic Legend Billy 'Cesar' McNeill.

Voted the greatest ever Captain of Celtic in 2002, McNeill will go down as a true Celtic Legend. He was a one man club with 790 appearances to his name and was the first British man to hold aloft the European Trophy for his 'Lisbon Lions'in 1967.



 As Captain he won nine Scottish League Championships, seven Scottish Cups, and six Scottish League Cups.



I was curious to find out why his nickname was 'Cesar', here is what I found out, but please correct me if I am wrong.

Billy's nickname is Cesar, However, this doesn't come from any Roman connections, rather from a movie. In the original Ocean's 11, the actor Cesar Romero drove the getaway car.

Billy McNeill was one of the few members of the Celtic team that had a car.
