As a teenager he played Sunday football for Sheffield side AFC Dronfield and he still stays in touch with the club.
"All my friends played for them, so I went along and signed up," he said.
"I still call in and visit whenever I'm around the area and have helped out in training and had a kick about with some of the younger groups.
"It's amazing if you go back all those years and think of where you are now.
"I am very proud of what I have achieved. I was very proud the other night with playing, getting a result and my goal."
