New Ringer - Austin Hutchinson

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Austin is another one of "The Dads". He says, and I quote "I’ve subcontracted the responses to the undernoted to “my people” who have a certain artistic licence and should answer on the basis of underpromise, overdeliver!", so who knows what we'll get! I'm pretty sure Austin said he used to play at a decent level back in the day.

  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”? 
    • Hoping a 3 at the moment.
  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”? 
    • I’ll stick with 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”? 
    • Again a 3!
  4. Speed, out of five, where 1 is “I'm more of a long distance runner” and five is “Usain Bolt!”? 
    • 3 is the magic number!
  5. Best position – keeper, defender, defensive midfielder (good distributer), attacking midfielder (goal scorer but not an out and out striker) or striker? 
    • 3....sorry, habit! Attacking midfielder although will migrate to defensive midfielder to decrease pulse and heart rate.
  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. 
    • Once scored 9 goals in one 11s game for the BB in an epic 16-4 win, age 10!
