Favourite Goal Scored: Don’t really like to go on about it but just to set the scene for you.. It was the British Colleges national final at The Keepmoat and nerves were high in the dressing room before with certain individuals even taking to their knees to pray. Around 70 minutes into the game we found ourselves 2-0 down and in desperate need of a goal and a hero to turn our fortune. As the pressure and desperation builds, we got a corner and as it was floated in, I instinctively knew I wouldn’t be getting to the ball so dropped off and positioned myself just outside of the box to pick up any scraps. The ball was cleared and I found it floating out towards my left boot and then in a flash I’d smashed it into the top corner and the keeper was rooted, some say he blinked and missed it and who am I to argue with them. So in summary, a 25 yard screamer of a volley with my left foot is my favourite goal scored (of many).
Most Memorable Moment In Football: Getting into the England Colleges team.
Worst Moment in Football: Having to miss the majority of a season and just watch football due to an injury whilst playing youth football.
Best Mate In Football: Liam Flynn (Mossley AFC). We met playing for England Colleges together and spent the last 2 years living and playing together.
Best Moment At Matlock Town: I’ve got to say scoring my first goal in the right end after a debut from hell.
Hobbies: Love a series on Netflix (Currently working through Dexter) and I’ve recently invested in a bike so cycling makes the list. Other than that I’m a big sports fan all round whether it’s just watching or trying my hand at something new.
