In the next interview in our ‘getting to know you’ series we have Myles Lawman – currently away on holiday he will be back soon and ready to build on his hard work in preseason!
First of all, tell us a little bit about your life outside of football.
I’m 19 years old, live in Hull and i’m currently working on a gas and hetas engineering apprenticeship outside of football.
Tell us more about your footballing career so far.
I’ve played football as long as i can remember but joined my first team aged 7, before joining Hull City and then Grimsby Town from the u12’s all the way through the Youth Team. I finished last season at East Yorkshire Carniege, after joining around christmas time from Bridlington Town. That was my first season in NCEL after leaving Grimsby Town at the end of my youth team contract. I dont have one specific highlight of my career however at Grimsby being in and around first team players and training everyday was a great experience. I generally play in centre midfield.
What attracted you to Selby Town?
It’s a well established club, which are pushing for promotion and also have a great fanbase.
I’ve also joined with Danny and Josh Walker who I played alongside with at EYC.
How do you feel things are going so far?
Yeah i’ve met all the lads and settled in pretty quickly. Going really well at the minute and can’t wait for the season to start.
With 4 promotion spots this year, the aim is to get promoted and personally to cement my place in the team and play week in week out. There is a lot of good games coming up, you always look forward to cup games and having a good run in the cup, and just need to treat each game with the same importance and try and take 3 points from every game so that’s what we’ll try to do.
This interview is for the supporters, as Selby Town are very lucky to have a fantastic set of supporters both home and away. How important is this support to you?
Having loyal fans will always be a huge part of the game, and gives us motivation to play well and win.
