How long have you been at Rangers: This is going to be my 3rd Season with Winterton
This season targets: Our target has to be to try and win the league. We had a good campaign last season just falling short, so we are definitely looking to try achieve that this year with promotion being a must!
Football Ambition: My Ambitions at this moment in time is to have a successful season with Winterton Rangers, hopefully winning some silverware in the competitions we are in and gaining promotion.
Why did you join Winterton: I’ve been at the club 3 years nearly now, signing when Grimesy first took over and I’ve enjoyed my football here. It’s a great club with a brilliant pitch and facilities and the staff and other players we have here are great lads, and to have the chance to be successful together is the reason I’m here!
General football info
Previous clubs: Bottesford Town, Lincoln United, Goole and Brigg Town
Biggest football achievement: I think winning trophy’s are the biggest achievement in football and that’s yet to happen, let’s hope this is the year!!
Best moment: The one that sticks out was scoring a last minute equaliser for Brigg Town V Stamford in the Lincs Trophy Final at Sincil Bank after being 3-1 down, great feeling and great scenes!!
Worst moment: Worst moment in football so far has to be last season when I broke my arm. It’s the first serious injury I have had and I hated every minute of it. Being out of action for 8 weeks having to watch was extremely frustrating. Fingers crossed it doesn’t happen again!
Match day preparations
Pre match food: Usually beans on toast! Can’t go wrong with that!
Match preparations: Friday nights are always quiet and relaxing ones before a game, with a Saturday morning usually consisting of watching Soccer AM with beans on toast and a coffee.
Pre-match ritual: I’m not really a superstitious person, however when we had a long successful winning period last year myself and Luke Anderson started leaving the changing room last and that’s kind of stuck!
Best fitness tip: Enjoy It!
