Josiah Laws Captain
Position Centre back
Time at the club?
I joined at the end of 2019/20 season
Scoring in the semi-final of the senior cup for the reserves.
How are you finding the current lockdown?
This phase has been the most difficult by far, particularly because it is my last year of college and U18’s football, of which I will have spent a majority at home.
What are you missing the most?
A floodlit game on a Thursday night
Do you think the FA should make every effort to conclude season?
Yes most definitely, because non-league is an overarching social institution that affects many people in various ways. I understand and appreciate circumspection on the leagues behalf, as they have the responsibility of provident decision making with a multitude of factors considered. However, every effort to conclude the season is sensible.
How have you been keeping fit?
Fortunately our coach/manager gave us a training routine. I have been using this as a blueprint which I have altered and used to maintain match fitness.
Do you think sport plays a massive part in mental health and wellbeing?
Sport is a progressive and productive means for people to release and alleviate many strong emotions and some ebullient energy.
Have you learnt any new hobbies?
Surprisingly, I managed to get into some fictional reading material.
Do you ever think grassroots football will be the same?
I can only hope it does. I have no real assurances in anything at the moment, but the prospect of normalcy is appealing.
What’s the best thing you’ve watched during the lockdowns?
The film ‘Soul’ very interesting and clever.
If you could choose a song to sum up the last year, what would it be?
‘What’s going on’ by Marvin Gaye, because I still really can’t comprehend what is actually going on.
