About the Author:

I was born in1981 in Guernsey. I had always dreamt of being a professional footballer from an early age like alot of kids. From signing schoolboy forms at AFC Bournemouth I thought I could make my dream reality. After being released at 16 and knocked back form 7 various clubs I thought it isnt going to happen. I was then thrown a life line by the then Morecambe manager Jim Harvey. I was signed in the academy at then Conference club and a year later I was in the first team and being capped for Northern Ireland Under 18 side against Ukraine in Kiev in a 80,000 all seater. There wasnt that many watching {just to add}, maybe a thousand but amazing all the same. Every game ive played in since and every penny that I have made from football has been a bonus because at 17 I thought it was all over before it had begun. I stayed at Morecambe for nearly 6 years and played in 2 great cup runs getting into the 3rd round both times playing in the game against Premiership side Ipswich Town who were 3rd in the league at the time. I was then capped at Under 21 level for Northern Ireland. After leaving Morecambe due to a contract dispute I then went to Northwich Victoria, Glenavon {Irish Premier League}, Lancaster City, Kettering Town who Gazza was then manager and made me his first signing, Barrow, and a brief stint in Spain. I am back at Lancaster playing in the Unibond league. My dreams are still there, im not finished by a long shot. After leaving Kettering and having alot of time to think about things I felt I wanted to write everything down, so I have.
