You as a player: From a very young age I have always had a passion for football and to play. I started playing as a Goalkeeper at the age of 7, and I still have the love and commitment for the game as I did as a youngster.
I started playing competitive football as a goalkeeper for Cadley FC at the age of 11. I stayed committed to Cadley for the remainder of junior football where we won the central Lancs A division and two years later became central Lancs Premier Division winners.
I have 2 years of competitive experience as a goal keeper, as I have currently carried out a BTEC Level 3 in Sports with Preston North End FC, which consisted of playing Futsal as well as 11 a side football. Whilst playing Futsal I was first choice keeper for the A team, and 2 years in a row made it to the Nationals, only narrowly missing out on qualifying. In our 11 a side league this year, we finished 2nd again, another achievement that I am proud of.
By carrying out this course it has given me the drive and enthusiasm to carry on playing football competitively.
I would describe myself as a leader when playing football as I find my strengths to be my confidence and my ability to communicate effectively, especially when it comes to commanding my area and organising my defence. I would describe myself as a ‘sweeper’ keeper, meaning I am fast off my line, making myself look tall to the attacker, and being able to quickly intercept, and clear the ball. Shot stopping is another attribute of mine, I have quick reflexes meaning I am able to get down and block the ball, even in difficult one-on-one situations.
I am looking forward to improve and listen to coaches that are willing to help me reach my highest potential.
