Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?

I work in account management for a software company who supply financial management systems. I would describe myself as an active individual who enjoys going to concerts, festivals and sporting events.

How did you end up at Merton FC?

I answered a gumtree advert last season for the 3’s who were looking for a goalkeeper for the last few games of the season, although not an out and out goalkeeper I’ve played there before so thought it would be a good chance to get back into it.

What was your best moment in your MFC career till now?

Probably being given DOD for swinging a leg at a simple free kick that was bobbling towards goal.

If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?

Probably Tottenham Hotspur, as my childhood team it’s always been a dream as of most fans to pull on the shirt and walk out to play at White Hart Lane.

Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?

None which stand out as a superstition!

Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.

My goal for the season is to contribute at least 5 goals to the team and hopefully play some part in helping us earn promotion.
