Interview Brennan Dickenson

Hi my name is Brennan Dickenson, I’m 27 years old. Born in Middlesex and have been a professional footballer since I was 18. I am currently playing for Carlisle United FC. I have been told over the years that’s I have good pace, strength and quality. For me being left footed adds an extra bit or rarity. I feel my best quality is getting forward, crossing and set pieces. Southampton was much more of a professional set up, and demanded the right attitude and application at all times. There was an expectation at all times to be the best.

Interview Tom Hadler

Hi, I’m Tom Hadler and a goalie from Kent… Currently a free agent after leaving Eastbourne Borough I’m looking forward to getting back playing properly as soon as possible after COVID! For me it is definitely the goalie coach at the top. It is so important to have someone that knows how to challenge you and help you improve through relevant sessions but at the same time keep the environment fun, positive and confident. Obviously your team in general are massively important…

Interview Billy Knott

I am a Canvey island boy, people may know This  or not but I had a lot of expectation as a kid on the island and really messed it up if I’m honest! That’s down to me and only me no excuses lots of mistakes along the way but we live for today and move on, not for one second do I not think about them mistakes though it kills me!! When I was doing it properly if I was happy off the pitch…

Interview Conner Essem

My names Connor Essam, I’m a 27-year-old playing for Hemel Hempstead in the Conference South, my career has ranged from League 1 to Conference South and I have recently gone part time to begin my career off the pitch as a Financial Adviser. I am quite a traditional Centre back in the sense that I like to be aggressive and win the ball but I do think one of my best qualities is my reading of the game which should put me in good stead for the later years of my career.

Interview Tom Derry

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.

Chris Haigh

I’m Chris, goalkeeper at Concord Rangers, from Colchester, Essex! Loved it from the age of 5, jumped straight between the sticks near enough, was terrible outfield too. That was where I started my senior football career & was at Gillingham as a scholar there, which I loved! Good & frustrating, it was good to be in a first team environment but very frustrating not to be playing!
