Hi. Welcome to my new blog which will take a look at footballer stories rising and falling up and down the football leagues while taking a closer look at players who maybe next to make the step up from non league into the professional game.

My name is Joel Byrom andJB tottenham penalty I am currently playing professional footballer in League Two for Mansfield Town FC and have been playing in the football league for the past eight seasons.

As a player who managed to drop seven divisions within six months when I was younger and manage to get myself back in the league I sort of understand what goes on in a players head during these times.

In this blog I will be looking back at my career through the years picking out some of the most memorable moments either good or bad along with picking out players who have either made similar steps to me and also players who may do this in the future.
