I was born in 1972 in South London. I am a new author and I have just released my debut novel Eye on the Ball. The book is based on my experiences and insider's knowledge from my time as a Professional footballer. In the book I takes an uncompromising look at the harsh world of professional sports.
On leaving school I joined Tottenham Hotspur on YTS forms before signing a 3-year professional contract. I left Tottenham in 1992 and travelled to New Zealand to play for Wellington United. Since returning to England I have played and coached semi-professionally for a number of non-league football clubs. I am a qualified football coach and I've managed at academy level for Charlton Athletic.
Injury problems meant that I had to retrain as a teacher in 1995. I have now been a teacher for more than 20 years at various Inner London schools. I'm currently working as a Primary schoolteacher at an International school in Ningbo, China. I'm married to Sonya, who is also a teacher, and have two step-sons Jack and Mitchell.
