Dave McGuinness

Age:   Laughingly scouted as part of Mallards youth recruitment drive

Specialisms:   Swoop fielding, forgetting his shoes

Profile: Dave is a relatively recent recruit to the Mallards squad, now in his second season. When asked at his first appearance what he did the answer was “I can stand in the field” but he has proved to be surprisingly adept at all aspects of the game. With Mallards these things are all relative of course.  Dave has taken over as fixtures secretary this season so if you find yourself standing in a field on your own, in the middle of Northumberland, wondering where everyone is, it’s probably his fault. Or you’re a solitary dogger.

Favourite Colour: Pinky russet

Nickname: Big Mac (something to do with his box apparently)
