Name: Jack Johnson
Location: Kippax near Garforth
Most recent previous clubs: Doncaster Rovers (Youth), FC Halifax Town
Most memorable moment: Playing as captain for FC Halifax Town U19s, we were losing 2-0 to York City with two minutes to go in the FA Youth Cup 1st Round. I scored to make it 2-1, before a goal in the last minute of injury time somehow got it back to 2-2! It stayed that way throughout extra time, so it went to a nail biting penalty shoot-out. We won the shoot-out 4-3 to send York out.
Best goal: In youth football for Doncaster Rovers v Scunthorpe United, I hit a volley with my wrong foot from outside the area that gave the keeper no chance!
Favourite club: I’m Doncaster Rovers through and through. I’ve been speaking to Emile Sinclair about current Rovers boss Darren Ferguson from when Emile played under him at Peterborough and he seems to rate him!
Favourite food: Chicken Tikka Masala
Most famous player you've played with: Julio Arca when he played against us for South Shields a few weeks ago.
Pre-match routine: Always have poached eggs on toast for breakfast before a Saturday game, and like to get to the ground with plenty of time to spare.
Why Boro? I know the gaffer has been successful at his previous clubs, so it was a good opportunity for me. Also the new stadium and the turnout of supporters impressed me. I went to watch the away game against Ossett Town and Scarborough seemed an ambitious club going in the right direction.
Hopes for the season: For the team, I’d like promotion and a good cup run. Personally, I want to play as many games as possible and hopefully start regularly at right-back.
