Gary Stopforth

You as a player:

During my career playing football I have primarily been a centre midfielder and at nearly ever team I have played for I have been either a leader or the captain. I have never been used as a sub during the whole career and am usually the first name on the team sheet. I'd class myself as a winner, looking back at the last 6 seasons I have either gained promotion, won the league, had great cup runs (fa cup) or done all three. I'm a box to box centre midfielder and have always won the bleep/yo yo tests at my respective clubs. From starting off at professional club Blackburn rovers, I had a few years out at university then I got back into football. Since that time I have played at a higher standard year on year and am now a key member of Stockport county's first team. I have played football in America twice and have thrived off living away and dedicated myself to the game. As a 29 year old player I've picked up lots of experience and I know how to manage and ultimately win games and gain succes in a team. The deal I've signed this year at Stockport is a lucrative one but it has a release clause in January that I will activate to go play in Australia, it's something that I've always wanted to do, go and challenge myself in yet another country. Overall I'd say I'm a winner and would expect the same from anyone involved in and around my new Australian team. Gaz
