Francis Jeffers insists he's proud of his career.

The England cap is now playing for League Two Accrington Stanley.

Jeffers told the London Evening Standard: “Lots of people say I never had the best of careers. But if, at the age of seven when I was playing in the streets of Liverpool, the only place you could play football, you would have said you will play for Everton, Arsenal and England, I would have definitely taken that. I have played in some big games, in some magnificent stadiums.

“Now I am playing in League Two at Accrington. It is a good atmosphere and I will be giving it my all and enjoying it as much as I did when I was playing at Goodison or Highbury. When you come into football as a young lad you come into it because you love it.”
