Joshua Tumbridge has been something of a 'Mr Fix-It' for North Companions through the opening rounds of the Northern Inland Premier Division competition.
In their last three games, the 18-year old has played in goals, in defence and striker.
Usually their goalkeeper, when against Gunnedah FC two weeks ago they were short a left back he put his hand up to fill the role.
Then against Kootingal last Saturday with a few players missing Companions coach Jackson Zifodya tasked him with doing a job up front.
That was a bit more of a natural fit with Tumbridge generally playing up front on the occasions that he does play out in the field. In saying that he did enjoy the challenge of playing in defence.
Not that it really bothers him too much where he plays. He's happy to play wherever he is needed, as long as it's not the midfield.
"I kind of play everywhere except for the midfield," he said.
"I just enjoy playing the game."
That same attitude was how he found himself in goals in the first place. His junior team needed a keeper, so he put his hand up.
"I enjoyed doing it and just stayed there when we got older," he said.
Not a role a lot of people envy, the adrenalin and satisfaction of making a good save is for Tumbridge one of the things that keeps him pulling on the gloves.
"When you pull off a good save it always makes you feel good and everyone gets behind you a bit," he said.
Conversely, it is hard to hide when you "stuff up an easy save", and as the last line of defence there is a lot of pressure. But Tumbridge, who after graduating from Carinya last year is working as a trainee with the council, doesn't mind it.
"You get used to it after a while. You just need to keep your head up if you make a mistake and cheer when you make a good save," he said.
One of several players that have filtered through to the top grade from Zifodya's North Companions under-16 side, the man they call 'Tumbo' is a popular figure around the club.
"He's a character-and-a-half," Zifodya said.
"He's always great to have around. He brings a lot of joy."
Companions take on South United on Saturday and will be looking for their fourth win after overcoming the Kougars 2-nil in a game where their "age old problem of finding someone to put it in the back of the net" reared it's head again.
The amount of possession and territory they had, Zifodya felt they should have won by more.
"First half we were literally camped in their half," he said.
"(But) At the end of the day it's another win."
Slotting in as sweeper, he said Nick O'Neill, who was one of their two goalscorers and also their stand-in captain, was fantastic and led them well. He also made mention of Michael Gray who, with Tumbridge playing out in the field, kept for both grades.
