Ben Mortlock, Grimsby sports therapist, part of England support team at European Championships

Ben Mortlock with Englands John Stone

Great to have watched Ben’s career. His start point was futsal at Seven Hills Academy court where we are still playing today. His first University was Middlesbrough where he played for the university futsal team. Gareth Southgate was ‘Boro’ manager about that time, university had a link with the football club.

Ben is a great example to all our young aspirational players, he set himself goals and targets in futsal and then made the best career moves he could to achieve those targets.

Ben is on the England ‘Wall of Fame’ at St Georges Park, an honour reserved for those with 50+ caps.

The GFL is full of hugely talented players, who is the next one with the commitment and drive to rival Ben?
