The rain was pounding against the window, as i opened the curtains i could hardly see the paperboy ride away on his bike. I went down stairs and went on the BBC sport website and the breaking news was that Grays Athletic were looking to bounce back to were they were 6 years ago pushing for league football and to do this they needed a ambitious manager and was willing to give anyone a chance.I thought to myself could i see myself in the dugout at Grays. Within minutes i phoned my agent to put my name forward. This was the chance for me to prove myself that i wasn't a waste of space anymore after my professional career i could never settle down at one team i was always on the move.
Few hours had passed and i had no response from my agent who had stuck by me through thick and thin. Had he finally given up on me after letting him down with previous interviews. I drove into town to take my mind off things and meet up with a few mates down the local bookmakers putting bets on horses and the dogs.
I drove back home after an unsuccessful day yet again. I got home and noticed i had 3 answer phone messages. Were they from my agent or just banks wanting there money. Thankfully it was my agent and my interview was at 5!!!I quickly rushed out the house and drove to essex thankfully it wasn't to far away and i immediately got in touch with my agent to say i'm on my way!!
