Kevin Hughes

Wednesday, 4 September 2013

New Idox boy Kev Hughes gets his first game tonight. Here's his self evaluation:

  1. Fitness level, out of five, where 1 is “I’ll be dead in five minutes and spend the rest in goals” and 5 is “I shall run all day and track back every time we’re in defence”
    • Not played regularly in years so I give myself a 2 for fitness… But will be back at a 4/5 very soon
  2. Skill level, out of five, where 1 is “The ball will likely just bounce of me” and five is “I use both feet with consummate ease and have a fine array of tricks”
    • Described as the poor man’s Roy Keane when I was young. Skill level is reasonable but my game was all about pressing, running and tackling and scoring the odd screamer. 3.
  3. Passing ability, out of five, where 1 is “You’re lucky if I can just get the ball away from my feet!” and five is “I’m all about the one touch, total football”
    • My passing ability is not bad. Got an eye for a killer pass. Interesting to see if I still have it! 4.
  4. Speed, out of five, where 1 is “I’m more of a long distance runner” and five is “Usain Bolt!” 
    • Reasonably quick. Give myself a 3 here.
  5. Best position – keeper, defender, defensive midfield (good distributer), attacking midfield (goal scorer but not an out and out striker) or striker
    • Played centre half and centre midfield so I can play pretty much anywhere.
  6. Footballing history – any useful info. Did you play amateur? More of an 11s player? Once had trials for Barcelona? Anything you think might be relevant.
    • Played loads of football as a kid. Played for Busby, Clarkston and Eastwood. As a teenager I played for Busby and then moved to Shawlands amateurs were I played for a good few years playing centre midfield. I also played tons of football for my School, representing St Ninians’s at all ages. I also used to play in the Paisley 5s league a few years ago. My team started in the 8th and we managed to get up to the 3rd when I packed it in to work in Edinburgh. Standard was very high. I’m not fit but will be flying if I can play for the next few weeks!
Sounds like Kevin, when fit, could be a bit of a player.
