DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk. It was today the turn of Jack Collison to see his official PFA Profile.
Jack Collison is a Welsh international footballer who plays for West Ham United. Collison is a product of West Ham's youth academy and has quickly progressed from trainee to playing first team football in the Premier League since joining at age sixteen. A versatile, all-rounded midfielder, he is able to play in centre midfield or out wide.
Collison earned him self a five-year contract before joining the first team squad on the pre-season tour of North America. Although blighted with injuries throughout his career, he made a massive comeback in the 10/11 season after a fourteen month lay off. No doubt his proudest moment in his short West Ham career was his brace in a 2-0 win over Cardiff City in the first leg of the play-off semi-final last year.
Collison is eligible to play for Wales through his grandfather. Though born in England, he chose to play for Wales due to Welsh ancsetry on his mother's side. His then-West Ham team mate Craig Bellamy alerted the Welsh Football Coach and Collison has since go on to make 18 apperances for the national side.
Although injuries have blighted his short career, the Welshman is closing in on 100 apperances for West Ham. With his club sitting by him and gving him a chance to prove himself, hopefully Collison can over come his recent injury nightmare and finally play football for the team he grew up with.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Collison will have no shortage of fans after his impressive performances for West Ham.”
“Of course a player with Collison's talent requires a certain level of respect and responsibility and he is sure to be a major hit with fans on Facebook.”
