Interview Emmanuel Onariase

My name is Emmanuel Onariase, and I’m a right footed central defender. Both ball playing and no nonsense defender, adaptable to both depending on what the manager wants. Eat well in the week, sleep on time, do extras after training/ stretching & meditation. Keep my routine consistent. Massive because being tall, I didn’t have the best technical/dribbling ability so during my time it improved my technique and skill level massively. I learnt game understanding too.

Interview Tyler Dodds

I love football and have been playing since the age of 4 years old. I only really went to college and university just to keep playing at a high level and ended up with a BSc & MSc as well as representing England & Great Britain. I also love to sing, makes sense coming from a family of singers. I was a proper tomboy as a kid and loved anything active, played every and any sport but I was really good at football, and who doesn’t like footy?
