In the second of our new monthly feature, the Penalty Shootout Q&A lets you take an inside-look at some of our Goals clubs and the people who keep the sites running so smoothly, with 6 quick-fire questions.

  • Name: Eddie Boxell
  • Club: Goals Dartford
  • How long have you been part of the Goals team? Only 1 year 2 months.
  • What was your first football memory? Seeing Arsenal at Highbury when I was about 7/8!
  • Who is your footballing hero? Has to be Dennis Bergkamp
  • What, if you could, in football would you change, if anything? I'd like to see players being able to get stuck in more with their challenges, nowadays players go down over nothing (especially in/around the box) and then roll around like they are dying. Just get up and get on with it. Or bring back the old style MLS penalties just cause they are so ridiculous.
  • What do you enjoy most about working at Goals? Definitely the people I work with. Also when your league comes down to the final week with two teams tied and its still all to play for.

Sudden Death

  • What's your ultimate football moment? Bergkamps flick against Newcastle all them years ago.
