MY FULL NAME IS…

“Jor­dan Lee Pick­ford! I am 24 years old and was born in Wash­ing­ton in the north east!”

MY NICK­NAME IS…

MY BEST FRIEND WAS…

“Phillip Tilly – I still speak to him. He’s a barber, so when I’m up north he trims my hair. We’d play foot­ball, ten­nis, all sorts!”

THE BEST PIECE OF AD­VICE I’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN IS…

“Be the best you can be in your own self and be grounded!”

I LIKE TO TRAVEL TO…

“The Mal­dives or Bar­ba­dos!”

IF I WASN’T A KEEPER I’D BE…

“A hold­ing mid­fielder. I played out­field for my school and loved get­ting stuck into tack­les and scor­ing worldy goals!”

MY GUILTY PLEA­SURE IS…

“It’s got to be Nando’s. Keep it sweet to get the Nando’s rep up!”

MY TOP THREE SONGS RIGHT NOW ARE…

“Pani­c­room by Camel­phat, She’sabel­ter by Gerry Sin­na­mon and Fi­nally by Kings of To­mor­row. I’m not giv­ing you any Drake an­swers!”

I WEAR…

“A new pair of gloves ev­ery game – even for Eng­land!

THE LAST PIC­TURE I TOOK WAS OF…

“One of the Ever­ton phys­ios! He’s got a full kit on be­cause he's been hav­ing a game of foot­ball. He’s got his two thumbs point­ing at his name. Ha-ha!”

MY DREAM IN FOOT­BALL IS…

“To win the World Cup, Premier League or Cham­pi­ons League would be nice, but just to be the best I can be is enough for me, re­ally!”

I’VE GOT A PET…

“Dog called Ruby – she’s a lit­tle cavapoo!”
