James Coppinger (current professional player for Doncaster Rovers, England) joined Tom Shields and Mark Wilson to explore his 23 year (and counting) career and share some wonderful insight and advice to aspiring players. This conversation explored the resilience and character James has needed to display throughout a career that has seen him play for 13 different managers and stay at the same club for 16 years. A fascinating tale that perfectly demonstrates the iceberg phenomenon of people seeing the performance without understanding the depth of care, sacrifice and dedication needed to underpin it. A must listen to for any aspiring player and for any coach who wishes to teach their players the importance of character.
