1. Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
Outside the club I’m a self employed plumber who loves a drink and helping others to fulfill their drinking potential.
2. How did you end up at Merton FC?
Last year Scott Shew kept mentioning Mertons pre season so I thought I’d come down and see what it was like! Loved pre season, had such a laugh with the boys and enjoyed the orginisation. Haven’t looked back since!
3. What was your best moment in your MFC career till now?
Beating Actonians 5-2 before Christmas. We lost the first half 0-1 after a lackluster performance. We all got a serious bollocking at half time and we won the 2nd half 5-1. Amazing closing down and play from the boys!
4. If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?
I’ve got to go with Real Madrid. The Santiago Bernabeu is a monster of a home ground and they play beautiful football with a killer instinct to cap it off!
5. Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
No superstitions but pre match rituals are to get in the changing room with the lads, putting some loud music on, singing Dwayne happy birthday and roasting eachother!
6. Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.
Goals for this season are to help the 5s finish as high as possible. Every game is a cup final from here to secure promotion!
