- About me
I am a 15 Year Old Footballer from Christchurch. In most teams I play in, I am often deployed as a Holding Midfielder and occasionally a Ball Playing Centre Half, in a Libero/Sweeper type role. I play my club football for FC Twenty 11 and I have been involved in multiple training camps, programs and academies. My goal is to gain a scholarship for football and complete my tertiary education overseas, ideally in America and ultimately become a professional footballer.
I am a tactically able player who has good understanding of the game.
I am most comfortable or ‘At Home’ when I play the Anchor role where I can receive the ball when my team has controlled possession.
I am a versatile player who is able to excel in multiple positions and can comfortably play on either foot, regardless of pressure.
I am a trustworthy and reliable player who you can trust with any task both on and off the pitch.
I am a technically able player who can dictate the tempo and flow of play.
I have exceptional close ball control and am able to get myself out of ‘sticky’ situations or tight areas, if I am required to do so.
I am a good reader of the game which leads me to often being played in a slightly deeper and more reserved role.
I am very good at sitting in front of and protecting my back line.
I screen, deny and intercept any balls directed towards the opposition’s striker.
I stay tight to the opposition’s number 10 and step ‘aggressively’ on the player whenever they show for the ball and particularly when they receive the ball.
I tend to find central pockets of space in which i can receive, turn and play.
I am a player who relies on technical and tactical ability rather than physical presence or aggression.
I am an organizer and a leader, who is often one of the first names mentioned when talking about picking a Captain.
I am a composed player with good enough vision to the point where I can see any type of run and execute an accurate and well-weighted pass.
I am an adept set piece taker who is more than comfortable taking any type of set piece from any angle or distance with either foot.
I often play one or two touch, resulting in the fact that I very rarely lose possession of the ball.
I recognize situations to dribble and drive forward vigorously and purposefully in order to drive or to stagger the opposition’s defensive line.
