​Former Everton stalwart Tony Hibbert made a less than stunning return to football on Sunday, after making his debut for South Lancashire League side Hares FC. 

Despite having 16 years of Premier League experience to draw on, Hibbert was unable to help continue Hares' nine match-winning streak - including one match that they won 21-0, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat by local rivals (aren't they all local rivals if they're all in South Lancashire?) Clay Brow, bringing their run to a shuddering halt. 

Despite the 265 appearances that Hibbert racked up for the Toffees, he never managed to score a competitive goal, gaining him a cult following at Goodison Park, spawning the slogan 'When Hibbo scores, we riot,' a phrase which came true in a friendly against AEK Athens a few years back

Clearly, a side that's winning matches 21-0 isn't signing a player like Tony Hibbert for his goals, but that didn't stop them from putting him on penalty duties for his debut. 

In a hotly contested match, when a golden opportunity is handed to you, you want the most experienced head to be standing over the penalty. Unless it's Tony Hibbert. 

The former recipient of an England U21s call-up (he had to drop out due to a hamstring injury) clanged his spot-kick off the bar, proving once and for all that he is the footballing equivalent of Gil from The Simpsons.

Hibbert officially retired from football in 2016, but in 2013 he purchased a 33 acre carp fishery on the outskirts of Reims in France, called Lac de Premiere. Which translates to Premier Lake. Which is like Premier League. 

Talk about a utility man.
