Roger Girdham

A bit about myself: I have played football for 5 years. My first game was in the Centrals U17 Talent Shield. I was fortunate enough to then represent SA and play in the U16s state team in Horsham and also train in the U18s state squad the next year. Last year I was given the opportunity to captain my local team and we made it to the semi-final. It was a great experience and I learnt a lot. I really enjoy playing midfield but I am also willing to play anywhere.
