Jemal Johnson, best-known for a short stint with Blackburn Rovers and formerly of about a dozen different minor English clubs plus a Bulgarian club, has signed with Conference National’s Tamworth FC.
Johnson spent 2011-12 with Southend United and Dover Athletic. His best professional season came in 2007-08, when he scored eight goals for MK Dons in League Two.
Tamworth the club hasn’t many players of note, but the market town did produce the band Wolfsbane, whose lead singer, Blaze Bayley, went on to sing for Iron Maiden in the late 90s.
Don’t care much about Johnson. Do care about the Bayley tidbit though. Very impressive Howie!! Where do you get this stuff??
Tamworth does have the Snowdome though, so Johnson can do some indoor skiing if the mood takes him:
That was my trivia note runner-up, Daryl, but as a general rule, if you can reference Iron Maiden you have to go with it.
