Quiz – I Played For?

Following the success of our cryptic football quiz (which is now my websites most visited page) I wanted to add more teasers for you to enjoy and something slightly different that might take you some time to complete (although answers as always are at the foot of this page). I have compiled a list of fifty questions and all you need to do name the footballer from the clues provided in the teams they played for.

All players are now retired (so that I don’t have to regularly update) and to make it a little easier I have added the dates in brackets that they played.

I hope you enjoy and remember to scroll down to the foot of the page for all of the answers.
