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 (who usually lose all their matches) that includes:

  • Ball Boy - the captain.
  • Titch - a short boy.
  • Dimmy - a dim boy.
  • Benjy - a good player.
  • Goalie - the goalkeeper. This character is an anomaly in the sense that in some strips he never lets in any goals and in others he is comically awful.

Ball Boy's team kit is usually (in later strips) shown as having red and black vertical striped along the t-shirt and black shorts. Sometimes they get guest players joining the team for 1 strip, like Bea, or Grandpa.

The strip was drawn by Malcolm Judge until his death in 1989. John Dallas took over from him afterwards, and drew it until his retirement in April 2003. Since then, the artist has been Dave Eastbury.
