Why did you join Falcons and what can you remember about your first experience with us?
I've always loved football but had been out of it since finishing uni. I first came across the club last year while searching for a club but never follow through with getting myself down to training. However this year I ended up spotting the club while searching for something else on Tinder. We matched. The rest is history!
I remember meeting the other guys at my first training session and hitting it off with them from the go. I enjoyed the feeling of playing again while the guys were instantly welcoming with drinks at the pub afterward.
Which professional footballer do you most resemble or admire? (Footballing and non-footballing reasons!)
I'd say the footballer I most resemble is Claude Makelele. Like him I like to win the ball back, play simple passes and protect my team. For non footballing reasons we could be here all day but if I were to pick one it has to be Granit Xhaka.
What is your favourite Falcons memory on or off the pitch?
There are many, but my favourite simply has to be all the great guys I've met in the club. They're not just a group of guys I play football with and then only see the following week, rather a group of guys I spend a lot of good times with.
Being subbed off after 20 minutes in one of the games earlier this season. As I do, I threw a strop and refused to come back on toward the latter part of the game. I can't really argue with the decision though as I was playing like shite and the substitute turned the game around in our favour!
Most annoying team mate and why?
Irish Chris because he decided to fuck off and travel the world, yet had he been here we would have wrapped up the league by now!
Why should someone join Falcons?
You'll be joining a club with ambitions of having a great time both on and off the pitch.
