A Liverpool dad is taking the podcast world by storm with a new show based around amateur football exploits in the city.

Mick Watson, 39, created the Straight From The Off podcast last summer and has spoken to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, former Tranmere Rovers striker Ryan Lowe and amateur superstar Leighton McGivern while amassing over 100,000 downloads on the show.

After watching his dad play as an amateur, Watson went on to represent the Warbreck Pub and St. Philomena's in Liverpool before signing for Bootle in the North West Counties Football League.

But Watson, from Long Lane in Aintree, insists the podcast is purely a hobby and any financial gain made from sponsorship is immediately pumped back into grassroots football as well as foodbanks and charities.

"Obviously I'm not going to knock Jamie Carragher back!"

"I remember thinking footy players tell great stories, but amateur footballers have unbelievable stories.

I love things like that."
