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…
I’ve played football all my life, been a Cambridge United fan since I can remember. I Joined Cambridge age 8 after playing locally for water beach colts and have always loved football since a young age. Love to watch football whenever I’m not playing it and talk about it with my mates whenever I’m not watching it! It’s very important to me as it’s what I’ve grown up doing. It’s what my friends and family are invested in too, so they show great support in me and want to see me succeed that’s why it means a lot to do well as I’d like to try and make those around me proud.
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 am Sonny Carey, I am currently 18 years old and play for Kings Lynn Town FC in the National League North. Football is very important to me as I’ve been playing the game ever since I was 4 years old. Football runs in my family and I have always had a great passion for the game ever since a young age. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do since I was a kid.
I’m Bobby-Joe Tayler, 24 years of age from Asford in Kent and I play left back for Dover Athletic Football club. I prepare for a game the same throughout the course of the season I.e. food, sleep etc I’m not a massive ritual person so don’t really have any if I’m honest. I’m a believer in the mind and how you are mentally to how you will perform on the day of a game so I just relax don’t think too much of the game until kick off.
