Interview

Introduce yourself…

My name is Harrison Panayiotou and I’m a Saint Kitts and Nevis international footballer. I play as a forward for the National League club Aldershot Town FC

How do you prepare for an (important) match? (music, rituals, etc.)

I prepare for the game but listening to gospel music & always praying and doing the Lord’s Prayer.

You started your football career by Leicester City FC. How did you get into the youth of Leicester City FC ? And who has helped you the most? 

I was scouted by playing for a local side Allexton new Parks & at Leicester I would say Trevor Peake helped me the most, helped me find myself as a player & did very well under him.

By Leicester City FC you earned a lot of rewards. What is your best / most important reward so far? 

My best reward would be winning Barclays under 23s player of the month because I was first player ever to do so & scoring on my debut against Leeds united for Leicester was a dream come true, especially for my home town.

After your time at Leicester City FC, you were loaned out by Port Vale FC and Raith Rovers FC. How did you experience these periods?

Port vale I was only there for two weeks, Leicester recalled me & Raith was an amazing experience club that’s very close to my heart, my proper first loan.

In 2017-18 season, you played 32 matches for Barrow FC in the National League. Why did you leave Barrow FC after that season? 

I never liked Barrow if I was honest, the club wasn’t ran very well & I wasn’t treated fairly in my opinion.

After the English football club Nuneaton Borough, you made a transfer to the Greek football club Aittitos Spata FC. How was the transition for you? And did you noticed a lot of difference in football between England and Greek ? 

I’m half Cypriot so I can talk Greek anyway, so the transition wasn’t hard for me, it’s just a lot more technical overseas & that suits me better.

You played football at several clubs at which club did you  learned the most so far? 

Of course I learnt my best football at Leicester we had some great managers, but take away Leicester I’m learning my best football at Aldershot the manager likes to play on the floor which suits me best & he gives great advice on the field and off it on.

Harrison, you have also played matches for the national team of Saint Kitts and Nevis. What was it like to join the national football team of Saint Kitts and Nevis?

Yeah it was a great decision to join St Kitts and Nevis, it was a personal decision for me and my family & decision I don’t regret as it’s a country very close to my heart.

What are your personal goals this season?

I have my own goals written down, I don’t like to talk about them but if I don’t reach them I will be very disappointed, but I’m right on track and that’s what matters.
