I often say that you never know where life takes you. On January 29, 2017, I was watching Sutton United play Leeds United in an FA Cup game that was live on television.
In particular, I noticed a Leeds youngster, Billy Whitehouse, as he had the same surname as my wife before we got married.
A couple of years later, I was sending him a text message introducing myself, as he had just signed for The New Saints FC, and I was making initial contact prior to a press release.
Since then, I’ve got on very well with Billy and it’s been great to see him launch his own mental health awareness charity, called Mind Over Matter.
When he asked if I was up for a chat on Zoom, I most certainly was, and you can see the result of that below.
