Getting To Know: Ellis Simms

10 February 2021

Ellis Simms joined the Seasiders in January on a loan deal until the end of the season from Everton.

Find out more about the highly-rated youngster, below.

Who was your sporting hero?

Thierry Henry - he was up there in being one of the best strikers in the Premier League. It was not just how he scored goals but what he did for the team as well.

Best bit of advice you’ve had in your career?

Keeping a positive attitude will get you a long way. When things are not going too well make sure you keep working hard and don’t give up because your chance will eventually come.

If you could change one rule in football, what would it be?

I would change that no substitutions should be allowed to be made in injury time as it slows the game down and is frustrating for the opposing team

Favourite film?

Superbad

What football boots do you wear?

I wear the Adidas X boots, white and pink. They are my favourite colourway.

What would you have been if you weren’t a footballer?

Maybe an accountant as I was good at maths at school.

Name four other players, along with yourself, who would appear in your dream five-a-side team.

Messi, Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Manuel Neuer
