I have a passion for football as long as I can remember; I was born and raised in Accrington but unfortunately in 1962 when I was only eight years old Accrington Stanley resigned from the football league. When I was born I first lived on Stanley Street.
I grew up in the English home counties, bucking the local trend of supporting Tottenham and Arsenal by following family ties and supporting Portsmouth. In my early years as a Pompey fan I was captivated by the likes of Darren Anderton and Paul Walsh.
