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 Toby Lees

I am Toby Lees, 23, and I am a Centre Back who plays in the National League North for Alfreton Town. Growing up in a footballing family background I have always been around football and it is something which has been ever present in my life, from being a supporter as well as actually playing. Being a defender, I always watched the likes of John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, who were very good footballers technically but most importantly were very traditional defenders in terms of making sure they did their job first-defend.
