What is your favourite sport – Football
How did you get into sport – I started playing football for my local team when I was 10 and I never looked back! I represented my county in multiple ages groups, and then I was offered a place in a Football academy programme. This led to a place in the club’s senior teams, where I spent the next five seasons playing with them. After having surgery for a bad knee injury and taking some time out of the game, I returned to playing football for my local team.
What is your favourite sporting memory – Playing in a cup match with 10 players and being 5-0 down at halftime, we came back to equalise the game 5-5 and ended up winning it 6-5 in extra time! This game will always be a reminder to never give up, even when the odds are stacked up against you!
