Trivia: Names of other teams

So, just for a bit of fun, we had a discussion about Manchester United's players who have had team names as their surnames over the years.

Ji-sung Park's move to Queens Park Rangers prompted the debate and, thanks to some research courtesy of stretfordend.com, we can supply the following suggestions.

There's Sir Bobby Charlton, of course, who actually made his Reds debut against Athletic and current wing wizard and new No7 Antonio Valencia.

James and Reg Chester are good shouts while Dwight Yorke is pushing things a little but he still gets the nod. For international sides, how about Derek and Alan Brazil as well as Joe Jordan?

Going back many years, we're able to nominate George Lyons (the English spelling of Lyon), Ben Morton and, if we're delving deep into the non-league, Vince Hayes. It's probably fair to see Enoch West (Ham or Brom) and Denis Law (Tow Law Town) as a step too far!

Ezra Royals and Chris Eagles also warrant a mention for covering Reading and Crystal Palace's nicknames! Fan suggestions include the extremely valid John Aston (Villa), Tony Young (Boys of Berne) and Joe Lancaster (City).
