Goalkeeper Reveals More About Himself

Goalkeeper Sam Slocombe is stepping up his return from injury after featuring 11 times for Blackpool so far this season. 

Here the 28-year-old reveals more about himself, as he goes under the spotlight to answer our 10 questions. 

You’re given the microphone in front of your team mates, what song do you sing?


I would probably pass it on to someone else because I’m not a singer. I sang Drops of Jupiter for my initiation but had to have a look at the words.


You have five pounds left to spend, what do you buy?


I’d get two things for the money – a bottle of Vimto and a proper Turkish, chicken kebab with the clumps of meat.


What did you go as to your last fancy dress party?


We went to London for a Christmas do last year and I went as Oscar the Grouch because I had to go as something beginning with O.


Who do you room with on away trips?


Usually it’s the other goalie.


What is the most used app on your mobile phone?


Probably Whatsapp.


Not including the current squad, who is the best player who’ve played with?


Gary Hooper when he was at Scunthorpe – his finishing was on a different level.  


What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on and why?


I’ve had a couple, Antigua was nice a few years ago but this summer I went across to South Africa and went on a safari with family that live over there. I thought it would be boring but it was unbelievable seeing all the animals out in the wild.


If you had one super power, what would it be and why?


I’d want to be like Mister Fantastic from the Fantastic Four because he’s elastic and it would make it easier for me as a goalie.  


Who is your best friend in football?


Some of the lads I was with for a long time at Scunthorpe, like Niall Canavan and Josh Lillis, as well as Eddie Nolan who is now here.


What was your first football kit and whose name did you put on the back?


I had a yellow and green Man United shirt with number five Lee Sharpe on the back. That’s the one I remember.
