    Matt Sheldon.

    An American pro. A player slowly making his way forward in football. The clip is lengthy but worth watching with kids to demonstrate how hard football can be, and how commitment and hard work pay off.

    That's pretty good actually - I'm sure he is telling the story of a lot of semi pro footballers around the globe and comes across as being the ordinary bloke/woman off the street who's chased his dream. Hope some of those in the EPL look at this and realise what people out prepared to do to try for those exulted ranks!!
