    What Happens Once the Game is Over?

    Each week PGA Golfer Louis Harrington, Former Premier Footballer Dean Hammond & Life Outside of Sport Creator Liam Deacy will sit down to explore the highs and lows of life away from the field of play.

    This week, we speak to former Tranmere Rovers, Leicester City and Canada Striker Iain Hume.

    Early rejection led to a move from Canada to Tranmere. Iain progressed through the youth routes before signing for Leicester City On deadline day at the end of August 2005. Hume was Craig Levein’s most expensive signing in his first year as manager. Hume formed a fantastic strike partnership with Matty Fryatt and became a fans favourite at the then Walkers Stadium.

    Following Leicester City’s relegation to the third tier Iain desperately tried to stay in the East Midlands but a dodgy contract and putting family first led to a move to Barnsley, where every changed.

    On 8 November 2008, Hume sustained a fractured skull and internal bleeding following an elbow to the head, prior to challenging for the ball, from Chris Morgan against Sheffield United. He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, and underwent surgery. Hume fought back to return to the field but the head injury led to a stigma that plagued him until a move to Preston.

    In 2014, Hume joined Kerala Blasters FC of the newly formed Indian Super League, and played the next two seasons with Atlético de Kolkata, winning the 2016 ISL season before returning to Kerala Blasters in 2017–18 Indian Super League season. He then played for FC Pune City next season in ISL.

    Now back in home in Canada, Hume is using all of his experience to support the next generation. He’s in a good place and has a lot to offer after a life in professional sport.

    Hume talks passionately about rejection, financial constraints, mindset, injury, the love of the game, being present and his exciting post lockdown plans.

    What Happens Once the Game is Over?

    Each week PGA Golfer Louis Harrington, Former Premier Footballer Dean Hammond & Life Outside of Sport Creator Liam Deacy will sit down to explore the highs and lows of life away from the field of play.

    This week, we speak to former Leicester City and Sunderland winger Matt Piper.

    Matt came through the youth ranks at his home town club Leicester City and scored the last goal at their former home of Filbert Street in a 2-1 win over Tottenham on May 11th 2002.

    Matt was then sold to Sunderland for £3.5 million in order to save Leicester from administration. Unfortunately, injury forced him to retire early from the game leading to a battle with alcohol, drugs and eventually a suicide attempt.

    A stint of rehabilitation at Tony Adam’s Sporting Chance rejuvenated Matt and led to the formation of his FSD Academy with business partner Owen Johnson.

    Matt’s autobiography Out of the Darkness with Joe Brewin is available now - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Out-Darkness-Bottom-Story-Football/

    What Happens Once the Game is Over?

    Each week PGA Golfer Louis Harrington, Former Premier Footballer Dean Hammond & Life Outside of Sport Creator Liam Deacy will sit down to explore the highs and lows of life away from the field of play.

    This week, we speak to Doncaster Rovers legend James Coppinger.

    “Surely the best £30,000 Doncaster have ever spent”

    As James Coppinger prepares to hang up his boots. We sit down to talk about his incredible career and how his mindset has enabled him to play over 700 career games and score 85 goals.

    From Darlington to Newcastle United at 17, making his Premier League debut up front with Alan Shearer to Exeter City before a career defining move to Doncaster Rovers for £30,000 or £50 per match James talks passionately about how working with behaviourist Terry Gormley has enabled him to continue playing until the tender age of 40.

    Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), conscious and unconscious thinking and getting a right rollicking from Bobby Robson, we cover it all in this incredible conversation.

    What Happens Once the Game is Over?

    Each week PGA Golfer Louis Harrington, Former Premier Footballer Dean Hammond & Life Outside of Sport Creator Liam Deacy will sit down to explore the highs and lows of life away from the field of play.

    In this special episode, we sit down with author and journalist Mike Calvin to talk to him about his fascinating career on Fleet Street, working with the likes of Former England Cricket Captain Sir Alastair Cook, Rugby legend Gareth Thomas, Millwall Football Club and his new book Whose Game is it Anyway?.

    Football has never seemed so distant from its fans. Many have been alienated by the greed and shameless self-interest of the Premier League, and no one can predict how the global game will look post-pandemic. In Whose Game Is It Anyway?, Sunday Times best-selling author Michael Calvin searches for a reason to believe. Written at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, the book is a thought-provoking, deeply personal account of the role sport and particularly football plays in everyday life. Part memoir, part manifesto, it takes the reader on a tour of the world's greatest sporting occasions and into its outposts in sub-Saharan Africa, the Amazon Basin and the Southern Ocean. Drawn from Calvin's experience as an award-winning sportswriter, covering every major sports event over 40 years in more than 80 countries, it offers first-hand insight into such icons as Muhammad Ali, Maradona and Sir Bobby Charlton. With settings ranging from a jungle clearing to a township in apartheid South Africa, this is sport as you've never seen it before.

    What Happens Once the Game is Over?

    Each week PGA Golfer Louis Harrington, Former Premier Footballer Dean Hammond & Life Outside of Sport Creator Liam Deacy will sit down to explore the highs and lows of life away from the field of play.

    This week we speak to former Ipswich, Charlton and Republic of Ireland midfielder Matt Holland. Initially rejected by Arsenal for being 'too small' Matt went on to make over 500 club appearances and 50 international appearances including a World Cup in 2002.

    Listening to advice, keeping doors open and being open minded all played key roles for Matt in a career that lasted over 15 years and helped his transition from player to pundit on BBC, TalkSPORT and Sky Sports.

    A fascinating listen for everyone even non-football fans.
