Name: Karl David Bartholomew

Height: 6 ft minus 2 inches
Previous clubs: Drighlington Athletic, Tingley Athletic, Churwell Lions

Club you support. If you don’t support a team please explain why: I did support Leeds United for roughly 4 days when I was about 9. My parents bought me the kit for my birthday but I think I got rid of it soon after! I’ve never supported anyone since… Neutral is the way forward – I’ve now developed an unbiased expert opinion on football! Perhaps when Leeds are back in the Premiership, I’ll support them for another few days?! Could be a while though…

Favourite food: Right now I’d have to say Hummus – I’m addicted to the stuff… but whoever invented stuffed crust Pizza deserves a medal too

Favourite film: Goodfellas

Favourite TV programme: Don’t watch much tv but I do like Dragon’s and Heroes

Favourite player: Maradona – legend … my favourite current player would have to be Lionel Messi

Player you are most like: Theo Walcott – astoundingly quick with a bright future ahead of him!

Do you have any non Albion nicknames: Don’t think so!

Best subject at school: I was an all rounder! but I was particularly good at colouring in – so much so I got myself a degree in geography later on

Superstitions:       None!

Career highlight:    Signing for Albion??!

Favourite music: Led Zeppelin… but I’ll listen to just about anything

Other job: Surveyor

How do you psyche yourself up for Albion games: Some music usually does the job – Led Zep or something similar

If you had a sister, which Albiones would you not you let her date and why: Is this a rhetorical question?  …an explanation is not needed…

Best piece of footballing advice: Score more goals than the other team?! – as proven by Albion a couple of weeks ago!

Favourite football game of all-time:     Best game I’ve seen so far has to be Liverpool vs Milan – 2005 European Cup Final.

Favourite drink: I love milk

Pre-match meal: Hummus.. but I often get one of those for goodness shakes on the way to the changing rooms.

Favourite football pundit: Alan Hanson – the scar demands respect

Pin-up:  Too many to mention, but Kelly Brook and that Danielle Lloyd bird are favourites of mine.

Pick your all-time greatest team: In Jade’s formation of 4-1-1-3-1
