Music and sports are two of the finest pastimes known to man, so it’s no wonder that many of the world’s best-known male music stars have tried their hand at aspects of both. Here’s SWAG’s list of musicians who, for better or worse, have at some time dabbled in the sporting world. 

10 |  Louis Tomlinson

Louis Tomlinson malta, Tomlinson, whose previous football experience had been running a pub team, played in a charity game in his hometown of Doncaster last year.

He was given the squad number 28 and generally plays as a defender. His debut for Doncaster's reserve side in the Central League came in February, as a 65th minute substitute in a match against Rotherham United, which ended 0-0. malta,  Music malta,  Football malta,  The Top 10 Sporting Music Stars malta, Sport malta, Swag Mens Online Magazine Malta
