- Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
I’m a quiet guy until you get to know me, then good luck keeping me quiet. Work in IT, yes i’m a computer nerd, yes i like star wars, and no i cant fix your phone, that’s not my job! Like to keep busy into films, gaming, cycling, acting outside of football.
- How did you end up at Merton FC?
Was jumping around between clubs trying to find somewhere i could play consistantly and a friend of mine recommended Merton so i came down.
- What do you like most about Merton FC?
I like the environment, a lot of people having fun pre and post match, makes it a good place to be.
- If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?
Would have loved to have played for Juventus about 5 years ago, playing along side Buffon, Chiellini, Pirlo Vidal, Pogba would have been a dream !
- Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
Never shoot in warm up, i’m never going to shoot in game so im not going to shoot in the warm up.
- Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.
Probably to end up with some stupid award at the end of the season, for turning up with two left boots, and no right one… ive done that before, not my finest day.
