I am very conscious that I have a neurological condition — epilepsy — which started when I was 17.

I had smashed my head into the post on a couple of occasions and it’s happened since. The cause of my epilepsy is unknown and it hasn’t caused any significant problems. But we’re talking about the long-term effects.

I wasn’t always a goalkeeper. I did plenty of heading as a youth player. Knowing there is something already going on in my brain, is football going to have a life-changing impact down the line? That’s pretty concerning.

That was 20 years ago and already some people drew parallels — a lot of players wore padded headbands.

That was the first awareness I had that there could be science behind concussions, brain damage and football.

It put a light bulb on: maybe we should be protecting our heads.

I’ve not really seen anyone wear those sort of things over here.

A footballer’s worst worry was a career-ending cruciate ligament injury in my generation. Long-term health of our brains is not something that even came into consideration.
