Alex Waite

Alex is a devout Crystal Palace fan having grown up just around the corner from Selhurst Park. He grew up watching and playing amateur football on the sloped pitches of south east London and can often be found now either reporting on matches across the capital or simply spectating local teams on his days off. Alex has written for a number of online publications and has seen his match reports published on the FA website and on the BBC recently. He keeps a close eye on the Premier League and non-league football and will often be found ranting about how many professional players can't pass with both feet.
