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

When not playing football am spend a lot of my time in the gym or video gaming, probably more video gaming. Spend a lot of time with friends and family, as well as my fiancé’s family. I’ll be getting married in July of this year.



  1. How did you end up at Merton FC?

Before ever moving to London I came along to help out as the only sub in a 2’s game. DQ brought me along as there were no other available players. The score in that game ended up something like 6-0 to Merton, 3-0 after the first half….. I never got subbed on. Upon moving to London DQ assured me that it would be different if I joined the club.

In my first couple of years at Merton, whilst being a Uni student, I wasn’t the most reliable of players, in terms of turning up to games, understandably it didn’t give me the greatest of reputations in the club. I left London after Uni and moved back in with the Parents before returning to London for work, and rejoining Merton FC. This time, things are different! Im back with a better attitude, a little more grown up and definitely enjoying football more. So in all I would credit DQ with getting me to join Merton FC.



  1. What do you like most about Merton FC?

Throughout the club everyone is pretty close knit and the whastapp groups are always a great source of top quality entertainment.



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


It’s an obvious pick for me, if I were to choose a professional team to play for it would be Liverpool and only Liverpool. Stuck with them as an avid supporter since a very young age, again credit to DQ.







  1. Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?

I wouldn’t say I have any rituals or superstitions although I really dislike playing without undershorts, have to have that secure feeling.




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

My personal goal for this year is to get on the score sheet for the 2’s, I feel it won’t be too long.
