ive played football (or soccer as you guys call it?) for the last 18 years. Played high school, disrict representative, england schoolboys, semi-pro, and have had various try-outs with top league sides in england, the best of which was tottenham. I was on tottenhams books for about 2 years as a schoolboy, but never made it in the end.
I now concentrate on my skiing, as a serious ankle injury has cut short my soccer career. i was pretty good, but grew sick of it - its so competitive in the Uk - our national sport and all, i just wasnt good enough. still love it tho!
