Dressing rooms (whether the clubs that use them are amateur or professional level) are traditionally one of the most fertile environments for nicknames.

And, just because some of the journeymen in the English Premiership are earning fortunes in excess of £500,000 per year, that doesn't mean that the naming of players (other than what appears on their birth certificate) is any less common a feature in the club facilities they inhabit.

Here's some of the more interesting ones :

David "Wash" Ngog

Luke " Quite" Young

David "Hi Ho" Silva

Bacary "Y Viva Eh" Sagna

John "Ships" Carew

James "Hattie" Milner

Craig "Downhill" Gardner

Scott "Desperate" Dann

Stuart "Barnaby" Parnaby

John "O'Stadium" O'Shea

More to follow.
