3 players with the same surname

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42671984

I hadn't realised until this evening that Walsall had 3 unrelated players called Roberts in their team today, the own goal was by the defender Kory Roberts, with Liam in goal and Tyler up front.

Can't have happened too often...

    In the 1962 European Athletics Championships in Belgrade the bronze medal winning GB 4 x 100 metre relay team comprised David Jones, Ron Jones, Berwyn Jones and Alf Meakin.

    The 3 Jones' were all unrelated.

  • Three brothers, Rod, Danny and Ray Wallace, who came from Lewisham, were in the Southampton team that played against Sheffield Wednesday on 22nd October 1988.

    I think the key words in the opening post were 'unrelated players'

    I think Glamorgan CCC used to field Alan Jones, Jeff Jones and Eiffon Jones in the 1960s (maybe early 70s)

    well yes, you'd expect three brothers to share a surname, but doubt you get three in the same team often. I only saw there were three called Roberts in the Walsall team when I got home, only noticed two during the game. Am not very observant.

    Didnt Fulham used to have both John Collins and Collins John ?

    Yeah and the two Mousa Dembeles, although I doubt they played together.
  • I remember Mike and Marc Salmon, though I'm not sure Marc Salmon ever played a first team game for us?

    Were Ashley Cole, Andy Cole and Joe Cole play for England together?

    good call, probably didn't quite play together but must have been close around 2000/2001.

    Good one.

    Although I think Alan and Eiffon (?spelling) are brothers.
  • We had David Young and Tony Young at the same time in the mid 70s.
  • In 2009 Wales fielded an international rugby union side against England
    which included Adam Jones as a prop, Alun Wyn Jones in the second row, Ryan Jones in the back row, Stephen Jones at fly half and Mark Jones at wing threequarter.

    Furthermore Daffyd Jones came on as a back row replacement meaning that there were six Jones' on the field for part of the match.

    Keeping on the Rugby theme - New Zealand have played Ben, Arron and Conrad Smith in the same team.

    Yes, I was trying to remember all the Jones who played for them around that time

    On a vaguely related note, the band Duran Duran had 3 of its 5 members called Taylor...
  • Manchester United used to have Djemba and Djemba.
  • England's 1986 World Cup squad had the two different Gary Stevens as well as Trevor Steven. Must have confused Bobby Robson, who also had his namesake Bryan Robson in there as well.

    I remember reading that Robson went ballistic at the airport once asking where Peter Reid Was ....he was politely reminded that he hadn’t named Reid in the squad.
  • How about Robbie Slater, Carl Tiler and Richard Rufus

  • We had the Kimble twins, Alan and Gary.

    They each played several League games for us, but can't remember if they both appeared together in the same team.

  • Palace have a whole team called wankers.

    Yes, that's right. They were brothers. Eiffon has a highly rated wicket keeper but he must have been around at the same time as Alan Knott, so I don't think he ever got into the England side.

    First name Nigel?
  • Kolo Toure and his 7 brothers...all called Yoyo!
  • The Sodjes ...
