Twitter handle: @scottthomas90
Previous clubs: Hemel Hempstead Town, Chesham United, Boreham Wood, St Albans City.
Favourite Team: England
Favourite current player: James Potton
Favourite player when growing up: David Beckham. I used to try and copy how he’d kick a football, copy the boots he’d wear and even copy the hair dos. All to try and get myself my very own Spice Girl.
Favourite Away Ground: Hereford FC last season was good. Felt like a proper football match.
Most memorable moment in football: Winning promotion into the National League with Boreham Wood. A great season and an even better holiday followed!
Biggest disappointment in football: Usually the officiating. And when I say ‘usually’, I mean every week of the football season.
Best player you’ve played with: David Noble. Ultimate composure, rarely loses the ball and makes the game appear effortlessly simple. I learnt a lot from him on the pitch and laughed a lot with him off of it.
Best player you’ve played against: Aaron Ramsey. Played against him, and a few other Arsenal first team players in a pre- season friendly at the Wood. He didn’t break a sweat, but controlled the whole game. Just very technical and very clever. Good looking too.
Best thing about Royston Town FC: Getting to play along side some great players but more importantly, great friends. Being here has allowed me to enjoy my football again.
