How important is football for you?
Football for me is one of the most important things in my life, it was all I wanted to do when growing up and I am blessed to be able to call it my job.
How do you prepare for an (important) match? (music, rituals, etc.)
I’m quite set in my ways with what I do before games, I normally get up at the same time, eat the same foods and have rarely broken my routine my wholesome playing football.
Who are the most important people within football environment?
The staff and players are the obvious answer as in important people at a football club, however at Bromley there are a lot of people behind the scenes who do the day to day running of the club which often go overlooked. From the people in the office to the cleaners, they are all an important part of the club.
You have played in your youth at Crystal Palace. How did you experienced the youth competitions by Crystal Palace?
My time at Crystal Palace as a youth was brilliant, it set me up for my time in non league football well but the FA youth cup matches we played will always be something I look back on.
By Crystal Palace you loan out to Eastbourne Borough FC and FC Farnborough. How were those moments?
My first loans taught me a lot and for a young centre back who only played reserve games coming in to the non league environment was a massive change and forced me to grow up very quickly and I would advise any young player to get out on loan as early as possible to gain that experience.
You have also played football for the national team of England C . What was it like to join the national football team of England C ?
Representing your country at any level is always an amazing experience. I was lucky enough to play a few times and even score which was unbelievable and for my family to see me walk out with the England shirt on was something I will cherish.
Jack you also played in the youth at Bromley FC. Between the youth and now the first team? If so, what?
Bromley being my local club and coming up from a boy playing for the youth section seeing how the club have progressed since I was originally at the club has been massive. As of writing this we are currently top of the national league which back then was something the fans only dreamed of.
What is your best moment in your football career?
The best moment for me would be playing at Wembley in the fa trophy final.. leading Bromley out as captain and knowing my family and friends as well as 30,000 people were there watching.
What are your personal goals this season?
The goal of the past few seasons has been getting into the promotion spots and of course overall promotion into the football league.
