As part of the FA Cup 3rd round this season I thought what can I do that will add a bit of magic to the proceedings? Let me introduce you to the ‘Laid Back’ Groundsman…

This seasons ‘Football Magic’ on CBBC has been so much fun, I got to baffle Neymar Jr, Mark Wright and Juan Mata but it was now time to pick up the garden fork, don my groundsman outfit (well I actually had to borrow that!!) and help Eastleigh fix their waterlogged pitch for their David Vs Goliath clash against Bolton Wanderers.

The trick I performed was a matrix style levitation where I am balancing at an impossible angle while balancing the ball on my head. I was quite nervous doing the trick at first because we had an audience watching for the show but it went down so well, it makes everything worth while when you make people smile and create a moment of astonishment, an experience that they will never forget.

I hope that you enjoy the video on the link below, but the most important thing is that the game went ahead! A big thanks to everyone at Eastleigh for having us, visiting the Silverlake Stadium really hit home how special the FA Cup is. Bring on the 4th round…
