George Friend is egg-stra special!

The Wolverhampton Wanderers defender regularly supplies team-mates with eggs from his father's chicken farms.

Friend said: "I was brought up on a farm. Over the last four or five years dad has started chicken farming.

"When I first signed I used to go home quite a lot. For the journey back my dad would load up the front seat of my car with six trays of 24 eggs.

"I'd just hand them around when I returned to the training ground. I think maybe now I'd better think about turning it into a bit of a business because they've become very popular!

"Dad brought some in on the first day I came and gave some to the gaffer - it almost felt like I was signing a contract and the eggs were part of the deal.

"The players have been enjoying them as well and there's always a demand from the medical staff."

Friend used to help out his family before signing a professional contract with Exeter City in 2006.

He moved to Wolves for an initial fee of £400,000 last September.

He added: "I was always doing things wrong on the farm so perhaps it was wise that I got away. I used to break anything that could break.

"It was decided that it would be safer if I went off and played sport!

"I've got an older brother Will who's still there helping out - but I'm quite happy with a ball at my feet!"
