Personal Statement:

I have been in the professional system since the age of 13 when I was spotted by Norwich City Football Club (By Academy Head, Ricky Martin).

Since then I have dedicated my life to football. I believe in a holistic approach to being a professional on and off the pitch. Constantly learning and wishing to improve.

I believe that set backs are a major part of improvement and have learnt much from my experiences to-date.

My aim is to affect games whether I start and play a full game or coming off the bench.

I also believe that my off field attitude can affect my team colleagues around me in a positive way.
