Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?  
I like going out with my friends, riding my bike, and I like playing PS4.

How did you end up at Merton FC?
Had no choice really because my dad started a team but I’m glad he did, I love playing for Merton and I love the club. After little league matches on Saturday I used to hang around for a while and watch the Merton adults play.
What was your best moment in your Merton FC career till now?  
There’s two really: winning the league and coming runners-up in the cup in 2013/14 season with the U11s. And more recently, beating Worplesdon Rangers 4-3 after being 3-0 down after 15 minutes! It was my birthday when we played that match which made it extra special.
If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?
When I turn Pro I want to play for Chelsea  because I’ve supported them since I was 3 because my Nan used to live next door to John Terry in Oxshott.
Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
On match days I always watch Match Of The Day in the morning, It gets me in the mood.
Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.
I aim to get promotion this season, it’s going to be tricky there’s some good teams in our division, we’re 4th at the moment and we have 2 games in hand on the leaders. Also I want to try and play every game this season because in March or April I will have played 100 games for Merton!
