I feel like a kid when I'm playing football

Kaz says football makes him feel like a kid again, even though he's 61. And he scores some beautiful goals. Welcome to life after 50.

Meet Kaz

With a ball tucked under his arm and a smile that stretches from ear-to-ear, Kaz looks more like an excitable kid than a 61 year old. He's been playing football since he was at school and is obviously totally in love with the 'beautiful game'. In fact, he tells us his ambition is to play on the hallowed turf at Wembley when he's 70!

As Kaz runs out onto the pitch of his local club, he tells us: "I'm a striker, a dangerous player – and I score beautiful goals". He seems to keep up with the rest of the team effortlessly, even though some of the players are a fraction of his age, and says: "I'm a lucky man in terms of health and being able to enjoy the age I am. I feel just like a kid when I play football".

Kaz firmly believes that football is a magical game, with the power to bring people together. And it's certainly done that for him and his teammates. He says they've been incredibly lucky and, through friends, have been able to organise and play tournaments all over the world. Football has already seen him travel to places like Spain, Argentina, Brazil and Morocco – and his next sporting jaunt will take him to Berlin later this year.

People ask Kaz when he finds time to rest, and he always says: "I have six hours sleep a night, that's enough for me. The rest of the time I work, do exercise and play football. You would not believe how much the body can give if you just push it. Just keep moving. If I can do it, anyone can".

Of course, Kaz says sometimes it feels like he aches from head to toe, but he always wakes up in the morning full of energy. He loves to push his body and says belonging to a team and the feeling you get from putting in so much effort together, makes all the aches and pains worthwhile. And when he scores – well, nothing beats that feeling.

Kaz is very philosophical about getting older and says it's just important to enjoy what you do. He says: "Look at me. I'm 61 and still playing football". He laughs: "People say we're grown up now, we're over 50. And I say, life begins at 50!"
