How important is football to you?
Before I found a relationship with God, football was the most important thing in my life! Now I combine God’s plan for my life and the talent he has given me to express myself on the pitch and enjoy every single day as a footballer! I want to spread the word of Jesus Christ through my football platform so therefore the game is vital to me!
What are your specific qualities as a football player?
I’m an aggressive defender first and foremost! In both boxes I attack the ball and am very physical in my defending. I also like to play out from the back when necessary.
In the youth you played for Milton Keynes Dons FC. How did you get into the youth of Milton Keynes Dons FC ? And who has helped you the most?
I left Reading FC academy for logistical reasons and signed for MK Dons academy as it was a much shorter journey. At the time, MK had a reputation for bringing youth products through the academy and this was down to Dan Micciche who was in charge of the age groups 12-16. He took me out of my comfort zone as a centre half and developed me a lot!
After the youth of Milton Keynes Dons FC, you have played by Bishop’s Stortford FC and Banbury United FC. How did you experience these periods?
Playing non-league at a young age allowed me to toughen up and become a man really! On my first senior game I was welcomed with an elbow to the head and from then or it was toughen up or don’t play at all. At whatever level the jump to senior football is huge so a couple seasons at the age of 18 were crucial in teaching me the nasty side of the game.
After your period in England, you have played football in Scotland by Dundee FC. Did you noticed a lot of difference in football between England and Scotland ?
The standard of Scottish football was good! The training was of a high tempo and a few of the lads now play in the EFL!
Tom you have played at several football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?
I think my biggest learning experience was when I started playing men’s football at either of the senior clubs. Your so naive as a youngster, especially when it comes to defending. To not be allowed to make mistakes anymore as each game meant 3 points was crucial in helping me improve.
What is your best moment in your football career?
Captaining England school boys and signing the national anthem before each game Infront of my family.
What are your personal goals this season?
Personal goals is to play as many games as possible, enjoy it, and hopefully take Yeovil back to the EFL!
