Introduce yourself… ( who are you ? )
Mike Fondop, Cameroon, 27/11/1993, Striker (Chesterfield FC) , n° 36.
How important is football for you?
Football is a passion to me.
Mike, what makes you a special attacker?
I’m a big lad having pace, strength, aerial threat great technical ability. I think I’m special because I’m unpredictable with all God endowed me with.
You started your career by Stanway Rovers FC. How long have you played football there? And how did you experience these periods?
Played for Stanway for almost a year. I thank God it was a great experience. During that time I was full time at uni but wanted to play competitive football and the Stanway manager at the time (Angello Harrop) helped understand the English game.
Mike, after your time at Stanway Rovers FC you have played at several football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?
In terms of semi-pro football, I learned the most at Billericay FC during that time because that was the first proper men football I started playing. Understood the physicality involved and worked on my mental strength. The then manager (Craig Edwards) had training sessions that helped bring out my potential. For pro football, Chesterfield is the club that’s bringing out that potential. The manager (J. Sheridan) knows how to transmit his know how and help players improve.
You were loaned out by Guiseley AFC to Halifax Town FC. How did you experience these period?
It was a tough period at Guiseley when the manager was sacked and I wasn’t playing much after that but God has always created a path for me to rescue me from difficult situations. He brought to Halifax and by His grace I had a good end of season.
You have played by different clubs and you have scored some nice goals. What was your best/most important goal?
I scored the last penalty with Guiseley against Accrington Stanley and that was a historical moment for the club because it was the first time they reach that stage in the FA Cup.
But the goals I scored for Halifax were very important because it helped the team avoid relegation.
You became a Chesterfield player in August 2019. How were you welcomed at Chesterfield FC?
Very good welcome! The players, managers and staff immediately made me feel welcome from day one and since then every day is an enjoyable one before, during and after training.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced in a match? Explain your answer.
Can’t really think of one specifically to be honest..
What are your personal goals for the rest of this season?
Well, as the term implies it’s personal so that will remain between God and myself 🙂
