Meet The Gaffers...


Craig Hazell

Craig is a TV professional, writer and Heart of Midlothian fan who specialises in 90s pop culture, puns and of course football. As a student, he won the BBC Sports Broadcaster of the year and Comedy Broadcaster of the Year and now writes about anything from food & football to movies and TV. 

2016/2017 Tip: George Friend - Middlesborough conceded the least for two years running in Championship. Friend will start every game and isn't scared of an assist. A great squad option. 

2017/18 Tip: Tammy Abraham.

Ash Kernsworth

Ash is an app developer, FPL expert and West Ham fan who specialises in board games, quizzes and exaggeration. He is a former top 100 ranked FPL player and is The Gaffer Tapes resident number cruncher. His statistical approach to the game often puts Tom & Craig to shame and when he's not ordering Bailey's & Cherryade he's taking 7 hours to do his lineup on a Saturday morning. 

2016/2017 Tip: Andre Gray - He tore up the Championship last year and has the potential to 'do a Vardy' this year. 

2017/18 Tip: Álvaro Morata.

Tom Holmes

Tom is an award winning standup comedian, writer, Arsenal fan and father who specialises in Danny Dyer impressions, England circa 1996 and mythical wildcats. He is a regular on the London comedy circuit and his 2014 Edinburgh Festival show was a huge success with the Daily Mirror calling him "well worth watching!". Tom is also a novelist and writer who has developed quite the reputation for singing a made up jingle on the spot. 

2016/2017 Tip: Callum WIlson - Was going to be a sensation last season, but injury stopped him. Now everyone seems to have forgotten about him!

2017/18 Tip: Sead Kolašinac.
