Video: Notts defender Brian “Killer” Kilcline reveals one of his more interesting bookings

Former Notts County and Mansfield defender Brian “Killer” Kilcline revealed he ‘once got a yellow card for calling a linesman an egg’.

Brian started his career at Meadow Lane in 1980 and made 158 appearances scoring nine goals before leaving for Coventry City in 1984.

Thirty years ago he captained the Sky Blues to their only major trophy, lifting the FA Cup at Wembley in 1987 beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 in extra time.

He later played under Kevin Keegan for Newcastle United from 1992 to 1994 and for Mansfield Town from 1995 to 1997 before retiring in 1998.

Speaking on Team Talk, he said: “My paper form came through explaining why I got booked – I couldn’t understand to begin with why I had.

“I opened it up and it said – ‘The player Brian Kilcline wen over to the linesman and called him an egg’.

“It could have been so much worse – it was totally out of character for me to call him an egg!”
