This time around on Ramble Meets, Luke spends an hour with Paul Watson, author, traveller and football coach whose experiences have seen him set up a football league on the tiny Pacific island of Pohnpei, run a professional club in Mongolia, and also take responsibility for organising the CONIFA World Football Cup, a tournament for states, minorities, stateless peoples and regions unrecognised by FIFA.
In this revealing interview, Paul recounts tales of a life less ordinary travelling around the world on his footballing mission, the characters he's met along the way, and what the future holds for his many projects.
To purchase Paul's book about his time in Micronesia (and we heartily recommend you do!), search for Up Pohnpei! in all good bookshops.
