We are Helen Drury and Maggie Devine Inman. We’re both wives of former professional footballers and together we have created an online community for the wives and partners of current and former professional footballers. The reason we created our very own podcast was to give a voice to this community. So often we hear the football story from a player’s perspective, but on our podcast, we hear from the partner - a player’s closest support system.Our lovely guests give us a peek behind the curtain - sharing their stories and giving an insight into their life in football - tackling a range of subjects from mental health, supporting their partner, to breaking down stereotypes.

    Episode 12 - Maheta Molango

    LifeStyled Club founders Helen and Maggie chat to the Professional Footballers' Association’s (PFA) new Chief Executive Maheta Molango who’s leading the PFA into a new era.

    Having been a professional footballer himself, Maheta has a personal insight into the challenges footballers face, during and after their careers and at all levels of the game.
     
    The PFA are the advocate for the players and like us, believe that mental health should be a priority in football. They recognise the power of the community that LifeStyled Club represents and how the wives and partners can help to solve a lot of the issues a player faces.

    Which is why we are so pleased to be partnering with the PFA to get key messgaing to our shared football community - in all areas impacting a career and life after professional football, including education and wellbeing.

    Episode 11 - Scott Davies and Patrick Foster

    LifeStyled Club founders Maggie and Helen chat to former footballer Scott Davies and former cricketer Patrick Foster about gambling in football.

    Both Scott and Patrick are reformed problem gamblers and give us an eye-opening and honest account of their journey’s with severe gambling addiction.

    As wives of former professional footballers ourselves and having created the LifeStyled Club community for the wives and partners of professional footballers, it’s important to discuss the addiction problem that’s so prevalent in football, that impacts heavily on the families.

    Scott and Patrick - who are both part of the team at Epic Risk Management - discuss with us why they believe sportsmen and women are more vulnerable to developing a gambling addiction, what signs and behaviours to look out for and the effect and impact addiction to gambling can have on the loved ones.

    Episode 10 - Gillian Quinn

    Episode 10 - Gillian Quinn

    LifeStyled Club founders Maggie and Helen are joined by Gillian Quinn, wife of former professional footballer and Irish legend Niall Quinn, to talk about the sensitive subject of Divorce. Over 40% of marriages end in divorce, but in football, it’s over 70%.

    Gillian, who has a degree in Psychology, knows of many friends in football who have gone through a divorce shortly after the footballer retires from playing and she couldn’t help but wonder, given her own experience in the game, that retirement must have played a role in these marital breakdowns.

    Join us to listen to this thought-provoking chat about Gillian’s life during and after her husband’s career and what steps other couples can take in order to prepare their relationship for the transition of life after football.
