Brian Glover. Born in Sheffield, raised in Barnsley. He once said, "You play to your strengths in this game. My strength is as a bald-headed, rough-looking Yorkshireman".

Whilst I see the link, I don't think we can stretch Mr Sugden to Llamedosian. Lancrastrian, aye, but no t' bloody Llamedos! (unsigned comment by Knmatt, 16:21, 3 October 2009

I'll lose it. you are in fact correct! But there must be a bastard Welsh PE master on TV or film somewhere....--AgProv 21:05, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Possibly Richard Davies in Please Sir! I'm not sure he was the PE Teacher or not though.--Megahurts 16:27, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

A.A. Pessimal wonders elsewhere why "striped"; surely a striped shirt in the manner of many sports referees goes with the whistle? --Old Dickens 18:18, 11 June 2011 (CEST)

Only on one side of the pond - in Europe it's generally black shirts. Well, it was - now they're pink, green, yellow... but not often striped.--Knmatt 21:35, 11 June 2011 (CEST)

But then I was thinking: Evans - Llamedosian - Welsh - Rugby - wide horizontal stripes like these (what we used to call a rugby shirt), but they don't seem to be de rigeur any more either; traditional, though. --Old Dickens 01:00, 13 June 2011 (CEST)

And of course, a painfully obvious attribution for the Striped... at my old school, the head of PE was a jovial former Royal Marines PTI, an appelation the British armed forces usually honour with at least Corporal's rank so that he is better able to bully and beast physical fitness into new recruits. Given the other associations of Llamedos and one of its principal exports, could Corporal Evans once have been an Army physical training instructor?--AgProv 12:43, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
