Tell us little about yourself…
I’m Ellis Myles, play right back for Brackley Town.
Ellis, what type of defender is are you ?
Quick full back who likes to go forward and enjoys linking up with other players .. very comfortable on the ball and also good 1v1 defender love stopping crosses.
How do you prepare for an (important) competition? (music, rituals, etc.)
Like most players all I ask for before games is some good music to get you in the mood an not a very superstitious person I just believe in been positive.
In the past you played football for Leicester City FC. How did you experience these periods?
I went to Leicester when I was 14/15 year old and managed to get a scholarship with the club and enjoyed my time there and met some great people. I had a coach there called Steve (Beags) at youth team level and he was very influential in my development not just as a footballer he made me mentally stronger and prepared me for life outside of football to. At the time i never seen this but looking back I am so grateful.
After your time by Leicester City FC you moved to Brackley Town FC. Did you noticed a lot of difference between these clubs?
After I was released from Leicester I fell out of love with football and really struggled to motivate myself to play luckily for me one of my friends was at Brackley Town (Owen Story) and he dragged me along to training and the manager at the time liked me and I signed and played for a season which we got promoted I was in and out the team and still was unsure about football and left after that year.
Full time football to part time was different and took some getting used to.
In 2014, you signed for Stamford AFC, where you played two seasons. Why did you leave Stamford in 2016 ?
I signed for Stamford in 2014 a lot of my friends were there and I was searching for something that would bring that spark back and see me enjoying football again. I semi found that there we had a amazing coach (David staff). Unfortunately I managed to get myself into trouble and ended up in prison for over a year and Stamford stuck by me and even with missing a whole season of football took me back which I am grateful for but there was a new manager that I didn’t really get on with so left and that summer resigned for Brackley Town in the conference north as my old manager David Staff was there as a coach and mentioned me to the manager.
Since July 2016 you signed for the second time for Brackley Town FC. How important was that moment for you ?
When I resigned for Brackley Town it was very important because I felt like when I was first there I had so much more to give as I was a young man and was so naive and the second time I just wanted to prove to the fans and myself that I am a better person and I felt I had unfinished business.
You have played at several football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?
I have learned so much at my second spell at Brackley under the current manager he showed me so much and created a bunch of lads with an amazing atmosphere to make me enjoy football again 4 years now and 250 appearances and enjoying football is massive for me.
What were your highs and lows during your football career?
My high is going to sound so crazy but going to prison for a year sitting there and reflecting and learning from previous mistakes and knowing that I am coming out and going to be so much of a better person. It changed me!
I don’t believe in lows because like I said I was at an all-time low going to prison but turned out to be my biggest high in my life changing me as a person.
Lows are fine it’s when you learn a lot about yourself!
(Wembley F.A Trophy Final – football high!)
Ellis, what are your personal goals for the rest of your career?
My goals are just to continue enjoying my football and play at the highest level possible.
Brackley have been in the play off 3 out the 4 years I have been there be nice to finally get promoted!!!
