Interview Samir Nabi

My name is Samir Nabi and I currently playing for Hereford FC. I’m a ball playing midfielder who can create opportunities and score goals. I break things down more with interceptions than tackles. Yeah I was always one of the players who liked to get involved with the goals whether it was scoring them or assisting them. In that season I think I ended up with plus 12 goals. My youth experiences were good, always enjoyed the competition of playing against other big clubs and trying to stand out.

Interview Simeon Maye

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.

Interview Ben Turner

Grew up in Birmingham. Son of a gardener. Always wanted to be a footballer or the next Linford Christie. By senior school I knew football was my best chance. I always loved Roy Keane. He was so serious about the same and put everything on the line to win and I loved that growing up. The biggest difference in my position was the size and strength of the strikers I was up against. I caught the back end of the era of dele Adebola, Darius Henderson’s of the championship. It was get strong and tough or forget about a career at centre back.

Interview Callum Gittings

I am 34 years old, gas fitter and play for Leamington FC part time. Not a particular reason just enjoyed kicking a ball round when was little an stuck to it I Suppose. Actually no never started as midfielder was more of a striker when younger, scored a lot of goals growing up & that was when Wolverhampton Wanderers contacted me where I enjoyed 7 years at the club. Don’t really have an rituals before any game…

Dan Sweeney

My name is Dan Sweeney. I’m born in Birmingham and play football for Solihull Moors FC. Football is my life. It’s all I’ve known my whole life and every day I wake up I am grateful for the job (if you can even call it that) that I have. There’s a lot more to a professional footballer than people think, things they don’t see but part of the profession is not to be distracted or let anything off the pitch affect you on the pitch and training ground. You have to be very very strong mentally.
