Real age:




Grindr age:




[Actually 30 as we're publishing this on his birthday - Happy Birthday Tintin!]


Home town:




When did you join VMFC:


Late 2008. 


Former clubs, if any:




Greatest Village moment:


Greatest Village moment: Probably spending a few seasons as Captain. And scoring my first (and only!) hat trick at some point along the way.


What club do you support:


Liverpool, for my sins.


Favourite Village bar:


That new bar, I think it's called The Thompsons Arms. I'm not sure it's my favourite but it's where I gravitate towards most often.


What do you do for a living:


I teach spoilt children how to be nice humans as well as how to count.


Do you participate in any other sports:


I beat Sal every now and then at Tennis. I also like to play pool with differing levels of success. I used to get my arse kicked at FIFA by Toland when we were roomies. And I usually ref the Football side of the VMFC-Spartans annual shin dig because I have no clue about their sport and I'm scared to hold that thing they call a ball.


What else do you do to relax:


I listen to Power Ballad playlists on Spotify. Watching Netflix with no chill. Thinking about the next time I'll be in Thompsons. Planning short European breaks. Eat Burger King.


Current favourite song:


I really like Years and Years album right now, my favourite is Eyes Shut. I also like Pillowtalk. I still like Shut up and Dance. I will always like anything by The Wanted/Celine.


Current favourite TV show:


I am unable to pick just one, that's impossible. But I'm currently binge watching many, including Heroes Reborn, Narcos, The X-Files reboot and really hoping Series 4 of House Cards is awesome. I need to get a life, or a boyfriend. Preferably both.


All time favourite film:


I genuinely don't know the answer to this question.


Relationship status:




Favourite footballer (for football reasons):


Xabi Alonso forever and always.


Favourite footballer (not for football reasons):


This is tough. It's a toss up between Coutinho, Bellerin and Gibbs. Pun intended.


Preferred position (on the pitch!):


Centre Mid.


Describe your playing style:


Increasingly laboured.


Premiership player your style most matches:


Jordan Henderson. Not exactly great, but competent across the board!


What made you want to try VMFC out for the first time:


To get back into playing football after four years at uni and too much Pro Evo being my only attempt at 'playing'.


Why should new players join VMFC: 


It was the best thing I did when moving to Manchester: new friends, regular football regardless of ability, great tours, a well established and welcoming club. Come to training and say hello: I'm the one with the red face! X
