Strengths to your game
Skills and enthusiasm for football
My fitness sometimes lets me down, especially when there are too few games being played.
Best team-mate played alongside
Biggest influence in football
Probably my mum. I’ve always played from being very very young, always had a ball at my feet. She pushes me to always do better. I also look up to Raheem Sterling. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it, he’s had a tough upbringing and now he’s one of the world’s best players.
Favourite away ground
Personal football ambitions
To encourage vulnerable young people to take part in football. It’s a integral part of how I managed my behaviour as a young child; also encourage them into other sports to avoid getting into trouble and being more active. I have had many work experiences at football clubs and I can manage confrontation and challenging behaviour.
