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.
33 year old, husband and a father of 2. Played for league clubs including Hartlepool, Notts county, Bradford, Chesterfield, Carlisle and Walsall. No rituals/superstitions, just don’t like to feel too full come kick off so just eat food around 10am every game day and that does me other than a few sweets and drinks in the dressing room. Scouted playing for my Sunday league team around the age of 11 and invited for a trial at Middlesbrough academy…
