Pies Classics: Top 10 Celebrity Football Triallists

By Ollie Irish

Football-loving celebrities bore the arse off me. Ooh, there’s Robbie Williams gurning in a Port Vale shirt! Oh, and look at Ant & Dec swigging bottled beer in a sponsors’ box at St James’ Park! And, yes, Ralf Little, you’re a half-decent defender (by celeb standards) but stick to what you do best – hang on, what exactly is it you do best? Turning up for celebrity five-aside tournaments, it seems.

Anyway, the 10 celebs listed below get my respect because they actually had trials at a proper professional club. Some of the names you’ll know already; some will come as a big surprise…

Rod Stewart (Brentford)
 - Stewart was signed as an apprentice for Brentford in the 1960s but he didn't make the grade. Shame. If he'd been a bit better on the ball, we'd have been spared 'Sailing'.

    Two rumours of worthy note are Paul John Paul II’s footballing days, and existentialist, Albert Camus. Naturally, I’m far too lazy to check.
