Getting To Know: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Learn More About Pool's On-Loan Leicester City Man

4 March 2020

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has made a sensational start to his loan spell with Blackpool, scoring three goals in eight appearances.

On the books of his parent club Leicester City since the age of eight, here he reveals more about his interests off the pitch, as well as his favourite moments on it. 

Who was your sporting hero growing up?

Paul Scholes. He was a fantastic player. Everything he did – his passing, his technical ability – meant he was somebody I looked up to.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve taken on board?

Not to let anyone tell you that you’re not good enough or not big enough. If you believe in yourself, then you’ll definitely get there.

Do you have any pre-match superstitions?

No, nothing. I put my right boot on first, then my left one.

Favourite goal you’ve scored in your career so far? 

I’d say this season for Leicester’s under-23s against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. It was a Trophy game and we beat, pretty much, their strongest team. To score the winning goal was quite special.

Favourite moment this season?

Scoring that late winner and celebrating with the fans against Bolton in the 90th minute.

What would you have been if not a footballer?

I reckon I’d have gone to University and done something to do with business.

What music do you like to listen to before a game?

A bit of R ‘n’ B and a bit of house and dance. I’ve got a bit of a wide range of music, even like George Michael.

What is your favourite TV series?

All time it would be Prison Break or Game of Thrones. At the moment, I’d say Power.

What is your favourite film?

The Harry Potter films, by far.

Alongside yourself, name another four players who would make up your ultimate five-aside team. 

Peter Schmeichel, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Zinedine Zidane as a false nine.
