Date of Birth:

Religion: Leeds Utd & England.
Height: 5' 10".
Weight: 11st 7lbs.
Preferred Playing Position:
Playing Strengths: Challinor-esque throw-ins.

Date Joined Logica:
18th August 1998.
Logica FC Debut: 30th January 2000: Logica 1-6 St.Augustines. My first ever game in central-midfield. Out of position and incredibly unfit - I was somehow voted man of the match.
Previous Teams: Slimfast FC (Teesside University League - Player Manager), Hartshead Moor FC (two divisions away from Conference status), The New Inn FC, The New Pack Horse FC, Rothwell Jnrs.
Greatest Footballing Moment: So many. My first senior goal in my debut for the New Pack Horse - No. My debut goal for Hartshead Moor FC. No. My goal of the season for Logica FC last season - No. As with most footballers it is in the international arena where the greatest memories are created. Therefore it would be our 'semi-final' against the Irish at last years World Cup.
Worst Footballing Moment: Every game lost. Particularly the last one...
Model Pro (Models His Game on You):
Alan Smith (Leeds Utd). Since we went to the same school and played for the same junior teams (though not at the same time). It should be abundantly clear that he looked up to me for inspiration.
Favourite All-Time Player: David Batty. Leeds born and bred.
Pre-Match Superstition: Do not tempt fate, ever.
