Football Journey

My journey started because I wanted to play out with my older brother and cousins.  It later grew into my own love for the sport.

I have been in and out of playing football ever since.  From school teams, to Crystal Palace for 3 Seasons and then my university team.   I am also a youth team manager for AFC Leyton.

Preferred Playing Position

I am a Midfielder – CM or CDM but i prefer CDM.  At AFC Leyton I wear #23

Footballing Highlights

Coming back to play football at AFC Leyton has definitely been a highlight for me. By far the best environment I’ve been in, in terms of the club itself and the support I get, along with my teammates and my own team coach.
