Clappers scouted me on the pitch at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium (true story) and the rest, as they say, is history
What was your best moment in your MFC career till now?
Having my first Merton goal stolen from me on the line by Tom Benham. He finished club top goalscorer last year, I wonder how…

Portsmouth- boyhood team

None as good as Mustard’s.
