Born in 1984 in Manchester, England, Simon’s natural ability was recognized early and he was soon taken out of mainstream education. His promise continued to grow and as a teenager he enjoyed successful spells at Stockport County, Blackburn Rovers and most notably Manchester City. However at the age of 16 he suffered a serious knee injury whilst on tour in America, and the boy soon to be a man was told his dreams of a professional career were over. Despite years of battling his own body and those numerous teams of medical expert bastards, the cornetto fracture sustained to his left knee did indeed end his dreams of a top-flight career. Simon was last seen this morning in the mirror.
