Desert Island Discs: John Welsh

23 December 2013

If you were stranded on a desert island, which of your possessions would you want there with you?

That’s what we are asking all of our squad this season, here’s what our latest member of the first team had to say.

We asked PNE midfielder and captain John Welsh how he would cope if he were to end up like Robinson Crusoe, and here’s what he said…


You can only have one meal for the rest of the time you’re there, what would that be?

“A roast dinner, chicken probably.”


And one drink as well…

“If I’m there for a long time I may as well take some Budweiser!”


You’re family are there too, and all your loved ones, but which two other people, living or deceased, would you take as well?

“That’s a hard one that. I would take, that fella’, Bear Grylls! I’d take him to keep us alive and I’d take Katt Williams, the comedian from America, to keep me laughing.”


You can take two emergency supplies, what would they be?

“A boat and water.”


We’re going to give you an iPod, which five artists would you have on it?

“Drake, The Beatles, Kings of Leon, Lil’ Wayne and Eminem.”


You’ve got the complete works of Shakespeare with you, and a copy of the Bible, which five other books would you take?

“I like the Gruffalo, my kids like that so I’ll take that. How to survive on a desert island for dummies. I’ll take the Lord of the Rings – I like the films and I’ve never read the books. I don’t know why I’m saying this, but it’s the only book I can think of, Fifty Shades of Grey, just to see what it’s all about. An autobiography by someone like Tupac.”


Your DVD collection is sinking in the water around you, you can only save five, which would they be?

“Scarface, Wreck-it Ralph, The Lion King, Shawshank Redemption and Game of Thrones series one.”


We’re giving you a TV, obviously to watch the DVDs on, but it’s only got space to record one programme, what would that be?

“Game of Thrones.”
