Was football ever coming home?

“I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players.” - Pele   What can we take from this World Cup? Gareth Southgate has given the country a sense of pride following Russia 2018. The team went into... Continue Reading →


The Only Way is Up

The second the World Cup was over thoughts turned to when we would see a ball being kicked next. Its less than two weeks before the Football League takes over once more.

After saying in my last post that a friendly is unlikely due to the pitches being out of action, it turns out I was mistaken. The weathers turned cold, but no rain has... Continue Reading →

Training Diary 20/02/2018

I'd like to think that people would know me as a footballer who gives 100% all the time. I certainly think I give that level of effort into training or a match. And maybe it is that which is causing me injuries. My teammates say I'm made of glass! This season alone I've suffered a... Continue Reading →
