neil etheridge

Quite the story, this one.

Cardiff City’s Neil Etheridge very nearly bowed out of professional football. From sofa surfing on £200 a week at Oldham to equalling a Premier League record of saving two penalties in his first two top-flight games, the first Filipino to play in England’s top tier talks to GKU about his whirlwind career thus far.

Follow your dreams. Never give up. And making friends along the way might just stand you in good stead for future opportunities.
