One of the founder members of the club, Mark has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get the club to where it is today. While this has doubtless been a stressful job, rest assured that he has been short of hair for as long as anyone can remember. Even his brother can't remember Mark with a full head.
Starting his career with ECFC as a centre back, Mark performed admirably until the obvious overtook him - vertically challenged people shouldn't play centre back. He has since gone on to be an excellent left back, albeit with the habit of leaving his clearances to the last possible second, probably with the hope of inflicting his own symptoms of premature aging on the rest of the lads.
Mark rivals Coxy in the own-goal stakes, and has resolutely refused to open his account at the other end of the pitch so far in his career. Recently, there has been speculation that Tallentire was considering retirement, however he was outraged at the suggestion reminding the coach that it had just been a tough paper-round, and he has plenty of years left at his peak.
Mark has also served the team with his fabulous 'dog-poo' ministry, religiously scouring the pitch with his trowell before home games. Seriously - we couldn't be more grateful.
At his best: Nigel Winterburn, a perfect 7 out of 10
