I’m 23 years old I work in Air Traffic Control but training to be a Pilot, and I’ve been a Leicester City fan (technically from birth if you ask my dad) since I was 3 years old after asking for a Derby shirt and then being promptly marched to then filbert street for my first Leicester shirt!

When playing football I was a goalkeeper. I was known for not caring about my own safety and frequent broken bones all in aid of preventing goals. I last played competitively in an adults Sunday league in Surrey where I now live about a year ago, and ended the game with 3 broken ribs! Hence the term “all keepers are mad”
