I am a former Premier League professional soccer player from the UK. I played for Manchester City, Oldham Athletic, Aston Villa, Everton and Sheffield Wednesday, and I played for my country 11 times. During my 16-year career, I won promotion to the Premier League with Oldham Athletic FC, won the League cup with Aston Villa FC beating Manchester United 3-1 at Wembley, and won the Community Shield beating Blackburn Rovers FC. I retired due to injury and then went on to obtain a sports science degree as well as many other coaching qualifications. Before coming to RISE SC, I spent 7 years at Stoke City FC coaching up to U21 level.
