PREVIOUS CLUBS: distinctly average youth teams

Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
I work in Digital Marketing on Personalised Videos. Outside of work my hobbies include disco dance, sunbathing and ping pong.

How did you end up at Merton FC?
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…

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

Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
None as good as Mustard’s.

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

I’m part of the 2s/3s supersquad which has enough quality in it to challenge for the league(s). Would probably count 2s out of the cup for now though
