About Me, Joe!

Me In The Green Kit

Hello people of the internet and welcome to my blog, My Soccer Apparel. Before we get started I just want to clear one thing up- I am from the UK so throughout this website you will see me refer to the game of soccer as football. Please be aware that I am talking about the game where you kick the spherical ball into the nets at either end of the pitch and touching the ball with your hands is a hand ball! Now we have that out of the way, I invite you to read the rest of this page to learn some more about me, and what sort of thing you can expect to find here at My Soccer Apparel.




My name is Joe and I am the founder of My Soccer Apparel and I would love to share my story from when I was a kid, until now and I can tell you, there was never a time when football wasn’t part of that journey. I was born and raised in Plymouth, UK and my local team is Plymouth Argyle FC. We were in The Championship, so a pretty decent team but in the season of 2008/2009 we finished dangerously close to the drop zone. The next season was going worse and relegation was becoming inevitable. League One was our new home. I supported them nonetheless.


I quickly realized that I wanted a premier league team to support too. At the time, Joe Hart was my idol so I thought the only logical thing to do would be to support his team, Manchester City.


As for my actual footballing career, it was nothing serious. I knew that I loved to play football but I was never good enough to take it seriously, so I just played for my local Saturday league team and then later my Sunday team as I moved up age brackets. All I knew was that I loved football, playing it, watching it, talking about it. If football was involved, I was in my happy place.




Those are the words of the Scottish football player and manager, Jock Stein. I couldn’t agree with it more, football is ever progressing, with the introduction of VAR and the never ending supply of money getting pumped into the sport. However none of this would be possible without the fans, buying tickets, merchandise, TV channels and supporting their teams. I’m not alone in saying that I never want to see football stop becoming ever more popular, this is why I have created this website in order to do my part for the beautiful game.


Why Have I Created This Site?


The purpose of this site is to provide an enjoyable experience while browsing through my posts, along with ensuring fellow football enthusiasts find the right apparel for each and every specific need. I firmly believe that you play better football when you feel good in the clothing you’re wearing which is why I am dedicated to help you with just that.


If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.


All the best,

Joe Aisthorpe
