From a young age I had one dream in life - to become a sports journalist. Ever since declaring my love for non-league football, the foundations of the beautiful game, I wanted to write about it, analyse it, be part of it. My career as a footballer stopped at the tender age of 16 due to injuries at a local level. My career as a journalist never really took off, and altogether ended at the rougher age of 25. With not much else to do, I decided a venture into management could work. After all, what could possibly go wrong?
So this is my new story. I wanted to do a story I've never done before. Yet to write about a dedicated non-league save, it's something I have always wanted to do. I am always yet to venture a good few years into a story, and this should allow me to manage longer than I ever have before. I am expecting to start at a Skrill North/South level, but hope to soon develop into Premier League winners!
For this I shall be Ryan Griffiths. Made up with no involvement in my life. Although I based some of the storyline on the myself, I will be writing as a fictional character. Born on the 17th October 1988, Ryan is an unknown Englishman hoping to pursue a successful career. A fan of Nottingham Forest, his predominant aim will be to become better than his beloved side, despite being born and raised in Guernsey with Italian heritage.
