Formed in 1804, Zeus Vets have, along the way, been inspired by a vast myriad of former greats. On the left, Old Bob Sawndis, inventor of the television and part-time lay preacher playing in the formative years of the team. Bob later went on to play for England but his career was cut shory by an unfortunate accident with a 'Spinning Jennie'.

On the right, the cruelly deformed yet socially acceptable figure of Sir Robert Woods of Derby (circa 1894). He played in goal during the glorious 1896-97 season which saw Zeus Vets 'clean-up' domestic and European honours (note the ball in the net - a family trait - he was affectionately known as 'Bob the Lob'). Sir Robert was later hanged for baby-killing.
