  1. Ball Boy

    Ball Boy is a comic strip in the UK comic The Beano and also the name of the main character. It first appeared in issue 1735, dated 18 October 1975. It features a five-a-side football team that includes: ⁕Ball Boy - the captain of the team, Ball Boy bears resemblances to The Dandy's Owen Goal. He plays striker for the team. He has a minor part in The Beano Interactive DVD, playing football with a globe in a geography lesson. ⁕Titch - A small boy who usually plays in defence. Little is known of Titch, although he is given his own short strip in The Beano Annual 2002. ⁕Dimmy - A defender, who is quite dim, hence his name. He looks a lot like Plug. ⁕Benjy - He is a good player on the team, Benjy seems to be vice-captain and Ball Boy's best friend. ⁕Goalie - the goalkeeper. This character is an anomaly in the sense that in some strips he is a superb goalkeeper and in others he is comically awful, letting in everything. There are a few strips where he just sits in the corner of the goal, reading, because the rest of the team can't get a shot on target. ⁕Chandra Singh - just joined the team at the end of 2008
