John Painter

john.jpg

Earned himself the nickname 'Calamity' very early in his career and proved that it was well deserved on many, many occasions!
 
John's forte was shot stopping and he could pretty much always be depended on to save any shot that was hit at him and deserved cat like reflexes. Unfortunately any other kind of shot, especially the lob, could see John floundering.
 
Often thought to be susceptable to the lob even in 5 a side, John warrants his place on the hall of fame down to one or two stupendous saves that outweigh all the mistakes and the fact that he had two entries in the top five of the Eagles Most Memorable Moments!
