PART 2 - go and listen to Part 1 first.

In partnership with the British Heart Foundation.

The host. Getting this guest was a big coup for us .... Fraser&aposs is a story that deserves to be told. It is the ultimate challenge for identity for a football player when your career is taken away from you in an instant.

A Battersea boy brought up playing cage football on his estate. His journey took him first to the lush green fields at Cobham with Chelsea and then a scholarship at Brentford. He experienced the tough wake up call of non-league football and then had some great moments in the lower leagues with the likes of Wimbledon, Luton Town, Stevenage and Newport County. It was during his spell in South Wales that he experienced the highest of highs, with an FA Cup triumph against Leicester City and a defeat to Pep Guardiola&aposs Manchester City, and then the unimaginable low only days later when a heart condition ended his playing career.
