My names Kenny Clark and I’m a 31 year old centre half, who is currently captain at Dagenham & Redbridge FC. I think I’m best known for being a no nonsense, tough tackling centre half. Football has been such an important part of my life, I like to think it kept me on the straight and narrow and kept me out of trouble. It has given me the opportunity to do something that I have dreamt of since I was a kid! The experiences and people that I have met over the years has made me the person that I am today which I am extremely grateful for.
I’m Tom Derry, 24 years old and live in Brixton, London. I play football for Tonbridge Angels in Kent, who play in the Vanarama National South division. On a day to day basis I work for a media company in Battersea, managing their operations and general running of the business. For me personally, the most important people within the football environment has to be your manager and his staff, followed by your teammates, fans and general community at the club.
Football is for many years one of the best sports. There are a lot of new football clubs, but there are plenty of old football clubs.

I’m Jonny, 25 years old, I play as an attacking midfielder for Chelmsford City FC alongside working for a green investment firm in London. It’s very important to me, has been all my life.
