10 Questions: Will Aimson

14 September 2016

Defender Under The Spotlight

Will Aimson has turned out six times for Blackpool so far this season, both at the back and in midfield, after joining permanently from Hull City at the start of the year.

Now he goes under the spotlight with our 10 Questions, as we learn more about the 22-year-old. 

You’re given the microphone in front of your team mates, what song do you sing?
I Believe I Can Fly by R Kelly. That’s what I did when I joined Blackpool, I think it was at Southend. 

You have five pounds left to spend on one item, what do you buy?
I’d go for a KFC. A Boneless Banquet if I could get that for a fiver.

What did you go as to your last fancy dress party?
A long time ago I went as a fireman, but it was a woman’s outfit. It was a skimpy outfit and a hat with sirens on it. It was back home in Bournemouth and was good for about five minutes, until I realised what I was wearing. 

Who do you room with on away games?
It's usually Clark Robertson.

What is the most used app on your mobile phone?
I got all the lads on a Motocross game. You could play online so we all linked up – that was great.

Not including the current squad, who is the best player you've played with?
I’m going to say, just for technique, Tom Huddlestone. I played in pre-season friendlies with him at Hull and he was brilliant.

What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on and why?
I went to Disney Land as a kid and that was very good. Then this summer I went to Cuba with my missus and that was class.

If you have one super power, what would it be and why?
I’d love to fly. It must be class being a bird, I’d just fly everywhere like a dragon.

Who is your best friend in football? 
Conor Townsend at Scunthorpe. I was with him at Hull, he was the year above me but we played together for years so we’re close and I see him quite a bit.

What was your first football kit and which name did you put on the back?
It was a Brazil one with ‘Ronaldo 9’ on the back. It was one of the World Cup ones and I had the full strip.
