As a kid we did not have much, but I did have a dream! With the help of great coaches on and off the pitch, that dream became a reality! My aim is to facilitate grassroots football not just in the UK but globally, especially in underprivileged areas. My wish is to pass on as much support as possible to other aspiring footballers or people who just love the game! If I can help even one person achieve their dream then I will be happy!
