Player Profile

My career started when I was at Everton as a kid from 6-15 then I signed for Blackburn Rovers as a two year scholar then after that I then went to Cardiff for a while but then got injured and was out for a year, before signing for Warrington then Colne for two years, before going on loan to Atherton for the latter part of the 19/20 season. I’d say I’m an out and out centre half and I like to tackle, head and get involved in all the graft but I can also play the ball out of defence and I enjoy starting up attacks, I like to get involved wherever I can, I can’t wait for pre-season to start and hit the ground running. I can’t wait to get going whenever the season starts and meet up with the lads, I know a few of the lads already and I know there’s real quality in the squad, add to that the facilities and the fantastic crowd and it was a no-brainer really, when you know you’ve got a great set of fans backing you it always gives you that extra 10% without even meaning to, it’s the 12th Man. I’ve played at Broadhurst before and it’s so impressive, so I can’t wait to be playing for FC.
