Becoming a professional footballer is a dream job for many young people but the level of hard work and dedication that the profession requires is intense. Premier League footballers join academies from very young ages and entry to that standard of football is hugely, hugely competitive.
However, scratch below the surface and there are alternative routes into professional football. Former Premier League footballer, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, found his way into full time professional football in an unusual way. Originally working as a roofer, he was spotted during a labourer’s charity match and given a contract at non-league club Norwich Victoria. That was his first stepping stone on a journey that culminated in playing in televised Premier League games.
