Playing History

Current Team(s): Mid Cheshire College & Cheshire Schools FA (State)

2010-2012: Port Vale FC (tier 4)

2007-2009: Burnley FC (tier 2)

2010-Present: Cheshire Schools FA (state)

Trialled with Liverpool FC and Crewe Alexandre FC as youngster.

Strongest part of his game (according to athlete)

I feel that the strongest area of my game is having the ball at my feet and attacking by either running at players or passing and making runs off the ball, and crossing balls into the box. I have good amounts of pace and fitness and I enjoy working hard while attacking and defending. I am very confident at using both feet and I will not hesitate if the ball is on my weaker side. I do have the ability to score goals as I used to play striker for most of my football career, and was actually a striker at Port Vale as a YTS, but changed positions when realizing I would be better further back.

 

I love training and I constantly train hard to improve my performance, whether it be fitness levels or football specific. I feel I am always among the fittest and strongest in the teams I have been at because of my training off the pitch and I believe this is very important in sport, and I believe in USA fitness is very important even more so than here in England.
