It’s not every day you come across a football player who has the same name as the team he plays for.

Meet Bradley Stokes, who plays for 14th-tier side Bradley Stoke Town FC in the Bristol and District League.

Fear not – you are seeing double, but for all the right reasons.

After graduating with a degree in Business and Marketing from the University of the West of England, Stokes decided to get back involved with football.

“I knew there was an area called Bradley Stoke, so I searched for it online to see if they had a football team because I thought that would be cool,” Stokes said.

As if by magic, he came across Bradley Stoke Town FC – just 10 minutes away from where he lives in Bristol.

In September, Stokes, who grew up in Launceston, Cornwall, called the club and arranged to watch the reserve team.
