Jason van Blerk, without a shadow of doubt.
Here's a piece I wrote about him for C.H.A.O.S., under the heading of 'Vegemite Vootballers':
Jason VAN BLERK (born Sydney) joined a team that, whilst still in the second flight, was clearly on a sharp decline, just after the turn of the century. He was supposedly a 'versatile' player, which meant, in reality, that he neither knew how to defend nor was properly effective anywhere else. Astonishingly, for all that, he was capped over thirty times for the 'Socceroos', although nothing that we saw of him during his dozen or so outings for County would have led us to believe this.
Most unforgiveably of all, on being subbed against West Brom, one of his former teams who, inevitably, were coasting to victory against us in our own back yard, he turned to the Railway End and applauded the away fans. Oh, and he had a well-dodgy mullet, too - a good fifteen years or so after it was socially acceptable (and, even then, only just) to sport one.
I'm in Edgeley - and it's rainin'...
