Played a few games for Warwickshire at a young age didnt make it now play in a Saturday league for a team based near Coventry.
Bit injury prone at the minute mind, which is never good! When i played last weekend in a pre season game had 2 to my name and instead of netting a 3rd in an decent situation i kicked the bottom of the only defender backs foot and now my foots a balloon! The con's and pro's of being 6ft 6 is your great in the air and clumsy as heck at times on the ground!
I am currently part of an exchange in China, teaching English, and a few weeks ago we were challenged by some lower division Beijing team. I'm 36, and a chain-smoker, and haven't kicked a ball in anger for something like 10 years but lined up at Centre-half. They had strips, we had summer clothes. After going down 1-0 after just a few minutes, we thought it was doom and gloom.
However, we held on to half time (when I managed to get a refreshing few ciggies) and we somehow took the lead 2-1. But, we were playing in 35C (and had never played together either mind), so we were crackered with 10 minutes to go and conceded 3 in that time. 4-2 defeat, but the free rice wine and 10 crates of beer afterwards were all worth it!
