My name is mattie pollock I’m 18 years old and I am at Grimsby Town my position is a defender I was born in London and brought up in Middlesbrough. Football is massively important to me it always have from being a kid grew up with everyone in my family massive on it having had my dad play and my older brother currently playing so I was brought up around the game and ever since I was young it’s been my number one priority. I would like to say I’m a little bit old school I like to put my head on things…
Hi Guys Cameron here. I have a few little things I like to do before the game mostly on the prehab side of things I’ve picked up over the years, different stretches etc. And I like to wear the same shoes If we won the week before, don’t know why! Apart from that it’s just the usual preparation. I was living in Australia at the time and through various avenues got the chance to come across to a few teams and train to see if I could get a contract. Loved it straight away at Fulham, just everything about the place and the people involved!
I’m Laurie Walker 30 year old goalkeeper currently playing for Mk dons in in League 1. I wouldn’t say I have any specific strength of weakness, I work hard daily in training to try and improve my all round game to make sure I’m up to scratch and ready to play. Joining Mk as a kid is every kids dream come true, you take it for granted as a kid which is one thing I regret I wish I’d of spent more time on the training pitch at the time. But it was very different as I worked under two different managers who both had very different styles of play which was tough to adapt to quickly as a youth team player.
I think I can be classed as an out and out defender first and foremost. I enjoy the heading, blocking and tackling more than anything, but I do like to try and find a pass and bring the front lads in to play as much as I can. I think looking at it objectively my career reads like a slip down the leagues, but I don’t see it that way. I’ve made decisions best for me regarding the clubs I’ve joined and other times things haven’t worked in my favour. I’ve played across 4 leagues in my career and also in the youth systems at 18 and 23s levels so I’m fairly well versed across the board.
I’m Alice Griffiths, 19 years old and a Centre midfielder for Charlton Athletic Women. My dad introduced me to football when I was quite young and I’ve loved it ever since. I started out as a striker but now play as a holding midfielder. I have also played as a centre back internationally, but my favourite position is in centre midfield because I can get on the ball much more. Mia Hamm was, and still is, a big inspiration to me. She plays in the same position and although she retired before I started playing I watch so many videos of her game.
I’m Simeon Maye, from Birmingham. I work at a Primary school as a learning mentor. I support the better side of Manchester and I enjoy beating everyone at badminton! Ever since I was young I’ve been good at long distance running. So I’d say a big quality of mine is getting around the park for 90 minutes, landing on seconds and bringing other into play. In my senior career I started off at Boldmere St Michaels. Was there for 2 years before moving to Redditch United. Was also there for 2 years before joining Hednesford Town. Short spell there only there for 5 months before moving to Solihull Moors.
