Gilly's big plan
I guess people might be able to tell a lot about me as a person once they read my goals. Just by looking at them you can see that I have quite a few relating to football. Football is my life and means everything to me. When football is going well for me I’m happy and people close to me notice this. This season I was mainly on the bench for the 1st team, getting a good amount of minutes under my belt, but next year I really want to push on and secure a starting 11 place. At the end of the season there are FA Awards, and my aim is to be in consideration for the FA Young Player of The Year Award. But only good performances will get me there so this will spur me on. Regarding my international career, this season is a big season for the U17s/U19s/U20s. I would love to be selected for the England U19 European Championship finals in July, and also for either the U17 or U20 world cups in the winter. Both of these competitions will be the pinnacle of my youth career so far and I really want to play on the top stages for football.
My other goals are related to my academics. I want to leave college with top grades and get accepted for university. None of my family has gone to university, and as I was always seen as the less academic person in my family, to go on to university will be a personal spur for me.
