Interview Jordan Keane

Hallo, I’m Jordan Michael Keane, I’m a defender for Stockport county FC. I looked up to Steven Gerrard and Ronaldinho when I was a young kid, the older I got I tended to study more players who played my position, John Terry, Xabi Alonso, Roy Keane. I prepare relatively the same for every game, try to get the best sleep I can, go for a morning walk with my fiancée daughter and dog, have a stretch and foam roll, then just chill out up until ko. Growing up through different academies was good,

Interview Ryan Fryatt

I’d describe myself as an old school type of defender, putting my head in where some people wouldn’t think of putting their foot, love a tackle and don’t mess about. I was introduced to football by my dad at a young age and never really looked back, as a youngster I started as a midfielder but was moved to defence as I was the tallest in my team and from there on I played as a defender. Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, Vidic was a tough centre back and loved a challenge like myself, Rio Ferdinand was more of a technical defender who was good on the ball…

Interview haji Mnoga

I’m Haji Mnoga, I was born in Portsmouth and grew up in Portsmouth in an area called Somerstown. I’ve been playing football since I was about 3 that’s when I first kicked a ball and loved it always. I got football from my dad and used to play with him and my older brothers. I’ve played for Portsmouth since the development centre around 6/7 so I’ve ultimately been at Portsmouth FC for 11/12 years. I’ve just progressed through the ranks and recently got a lot more recognition in the first team. I would say I’m quite old fashioned because I love a big tackle.

Interview Joshua Askew

I’m a football obsessed 22 year old, players I’ve played with or managers would say I’m the oldest acting 22 year old going. Specific qualities would be being athletic/quick/strong/powerful/stamina but I’d say as the biggest quality is a footballing brain – reading the game and understanding the game. Growing up I looked up at Trevor Sinclair, Darius Vassell, Shaun Wright Phillips they were City’s best players at the time I was a big city fan growing up and still am now.

Interview Lydia Huntley

Hi, my name is Lydia, I am 20 years old and currently in my second year at Exeter University Studying Exercise and Sports Science. I’ve played for Gillingham, Crystal Palace, Kent Schools and I am now at Plymouth playing in the defence. I enjoy being an attacking defender as I love receiving the ball and taking it forwards. However, my favourite part of defending is 1v1s because I love the feeling of winning a challenge. I didn’t really watch football on TV as I preferred to be outside playing football with my brother (even though he put me in goal and once broke my wrist when I was saving his shot)…

Interview Mattie Pollock

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.
