Ben Stevely is a twelve year old footballer from England. He has been playing the game since the age of 5 and currently plays for a team called Layton Juniors in Lancashire. He dreams of becoming the next Lionel Messi and football is rarely away from his thoughts.

To get to this level Ben now trains twice a week and during the season plays on both weekend days every week. Add to this going into Year 8 of High School and it all adds up to a busy week for this football mad lad who is also into Keep Fit, reading and computers, amongst other things.

The most obvious question to ask any football loving boy is who his favourite teams are, and Ben’s are Liverpool and Barcelona.

When not kitted out in football shorts and shirts Ben likes to wear sporting clothing from Adidas, Nike and North Face. His advice to any other boy who wants to become a professional footballer is to try their hardest, never give up, keep practising and above all believe in themselves.

With that level of advice Ben is off to play for his local team once more. Maybe we will see him featuring in Premiership Football in the future, who knows?
