Most influential person in your sporting career: Alan 'Sinnie' Sinclair. He is one of the most innovative, knowledgeable and perceptive coaches I've ever worked with. He developed my technique and had a real talent for getting the best out of me and my team mates. A knack for teaching players without them realising they were learning. Probably a man slightly ahead of his time.
Before every game I : Eat Jaffa Cakes
