ST HELENS lexicographers will miss Mike McClennan, the coach who left the local rugby league club last week to return to New Zealand. His programme notes, compiled with liberal use of his word processor's Thesaurus facility, were legendary. A farewell example: 'We witnessed . . . players who did not conform to coachability instructions coupled with a defence that did not show steel and with access to the football showed disrespect to correct handling procedures.'

MORE unusual football club names . . . from Scotland, Tom Turner suggests Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and Shotts Bon Accord. But can any club in the world possess a finer moniker than the Swaziland Cup winners, Eleven Men in Flight?
