Foots Cray Lions


From Foots Cray I went to Tottenham and then I got released at U10s. Someone recommended Southend and I played a trial game against a Brazilian team and after that Rick [Duncan] signed me.

Nine years.

Luke Hobbs, Dave Huzzey and Rick. Now more so Kev Maher as the U23 coach.

My technical ability.

Being more dynamic, so for my position getting up and down a little bit more.

Just to keep going when things aren’t going well for you. You have good and bad games but when you have a bad game don’t dwell on it too much.

Nike Mecurials.

Not really!

Floyd Mayweather

Lewis Gard


Leighton Baines

Probably the 2-0 U23 Central Cup Southern Final win against MK Dons last season.
