I am a 23 year old IT Support Engineer from the West Midlands, UK. I have a huge passion for football; following most of the action across the major European leagues and beyond. I follow Everton FC (don't ask why) and my local football team. My main hobbies are writing, running, taking my dogs out for a walk, running and playing computer games.

My aim is to write an article for the site at least once a week; depending on the news that's circulating sport.
