Football Favourites with Stuart Sinclair

17 March 2020

We sat down with Saddlers midfielder Stuart Sinclair who told us a number of his favourite footballing things.

Sinclair has had a fine career after coming through non-league before a successful five year spell at Bristol Rovers prior to his move to the Banks's Stadium in the summer. 

Here he reveals some of his favourite moments and his favourite footballing things!

Favourite Career Game

"I’ve got two favourite games. We played Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which was amazing. I won a penalty but we lost 3-2 although we had them on the rocks for a while and we played really well.

"It was when we first got into League One. It was an amazing achievement to go from where I had been to playing at Stamford Bridge against the likes of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

"The other game was when we played Gateshead at home and I scored in my first year at Bristol Rovers.

"That kind of pushed us forward to build momentum and it was an amazing feeling and it was a huge moment."

Favourite Stadium

"The Old Wembley for me, it’s iconic."

Favourite Goal

"I’d say the goal I scored for Salisbury against Dover in extra-time, I chipped it over the keeper and it dropped into the far corner and we won 3-2."

Favourite Season

"Probably the League Two season (2015-16) when we got promoted with Bristol Rovers but I don’t really gravitate towards a season, I gravitate more to specific games where we’ve moved forwards but that season at Bristol Rovers, a lot of the team hadn’t played too much league football so to get promoted straight into League One was huge for us."

Favourite Footballer

"My favourite current footballer is N’Golo Kante. I like the hustle and bustle of him and I enjoy watching him, I think he’s a very good footballer. Past I’d probably say Gazza."

Favourite Team

"Tottenham Hotspur."

Favourite Manager

"It has to be Darrell Clarke. I’ve played under him for the majority of my favourite career. To have a manager who trusts you and respects you is important and he has always done that. The way he manages teams and people is admirable."
