Football Journey

My football journey started from a young age, when I used to play in the garden with my older brothers. Football has ran through my family for generations.  My mum , Nan and Great nan also played football.  Through football I have met lots of amazing people that have helped and encouraged me when playing a game or at training but mostly I think football has given me a great amount of confidence which has made me become the best player I can be.

Footballing Highlights

I have had a few moments so far within my football journey, starting with me beginning to play county level football and representing Kent at U14s.  In one of my seasons at Kent I was voted player of the season by all of the Kent coaches/managers which I am very proud of.  Within the short period of time I have been at AFC Leyton I have also achieved player of the match twice, which has been a really big confidence boost and positive for me since joining.

Apart from the individual awards, a final big highlight for me has been and still is being able to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds and being able to share/compare my experiences with them.
