Meet the Player: Charlie Orsler (Brymbo FC)

Charlie Orsler

Full Name

Charlie William Tiger Orsler

Date of Birth

27th September 2001

Occupation

Lifeguard

Teams you have played for

I’ve played with a few including Nantwich, Ruskin Park Rovers, playing for my county and district football, all been good experiences and had a great bunch of managers who’ve helped me including two people Gary Wilson and Pete Griffiths who I’d say I developed most under.

Most memorable game played in 

I’ve played against Leicester’s academy at their training ground with my agency and that was a memorable game because it showed me how high the standard is if you want to get to that level and play with the best.

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Either winning an international tournament competition in Paris with my Sunday league team at the time or on a personal note signing with my agency as that was where I felt I started taking my football seriously and could have some kind of career from it.

Charlie has his own video!

Best goal scored

I scored a goal in a showcase game with my agency that was caught on camera. I chipped the ball over a player, beat two or 3 players and then slotted it in the bottom corner. I’d say that was my best goal and it’s good cause I can show it to people and prove it😂

Strengths to your game

I’d say that my left foot is definitely my biggest strength. It makes me hard to defend against.

Weaknesses

My right foot is definitely my weakness, it’s there for standing on and the occasional shot that’s about it😂

Best team-mate played alongside

Think to keep the family happy I’d have to say my brother😉😂

Hardest opponent faced

I’d say any of the Leicester academy back four. Technically and physically they were just so good.

Biggest influence in football

As a kid I’d admire Steven Gerrard. Being a Liverpool fan as well he was like superman to me at like 5/6

Funniest team-mate (s)

Chris Boyes

I’d say captain, Chris ‘Boysey’ Boyes and Keith Lewis are the funny men. Every time I’ve come into training they’ve been making jokes about me being the better looking brother between me and Steven and they’ve helped me settle into the team quickly.

Favourite away ground

I don’t have one yet, maybe at the end of the season I’ll be able to answer that question for you.

Other sporting achievements

I think running for county cross-country was a good achievement for me considering I really didn’t want to do it but I was forced into it by my PE teacher😂

Personal football ambitions

My ambition is to do well this season. It’s my first full season in men’s football so I’m looking forward to the challenge and the aim is to make a name for myself at least out in America when I go out there to do my scholarship.

Tell us about your future MLS scholarship – how excited are you about it?

I’m buzzing about it you know, it’s a great opportunity for me. Obviously mixed feelings leaving my family and loved ones but they understand it’s too good of an opportunity to miss out on. I was supposed to go this year but coronavirus says otherwise, but I feel like I’ve really landed on my feet here at this club.

Game of Thrones

TV show you dislike most

Friends – I know it’s controversial but I just don’t find it funny. I’ve tried so many times to get into it but I just can’t I get bored after like 5 minutes😂 (DJ – not controversial at all, Friends is a very unpopular programme with many of the male and female footballers who take part in these features)

Best quality as a person

I think being chilled out and not stressing about much is a quality I feel I’m very lucky to have.

Worst fault

I’m terrible for keeping time. I’m often late so I can see myself being at the top of the fines list for lateness this year😂

Best live show/concern seen

I’ve never been to a live show. Was going to go to a festival this year but didn’t happen

How do you see Brymbo FC’s prospects for the 2020-21 season?

I think we’ve got a good group of lads with a lot of quality and a good management behind us, so we will just have to take it a game at a time and see how it goes.

Tell us something about you we might not know

I once dyed my hair pink for charity, raised over £100 for Cancer Research so that’s something you didn’t know about me.
