After 10 years as a professional football player, playing for Watford FC, Blackburn FC and Aberdeen I retired at the age of 28 to become a financial planner. In the early days of my career I had dreams and expectations of playing in the Premier League and having a long career late into my thirties. This never quite materialised, and due to a variety of reasons I fell out of love with playing the game professionally.
My goal now is to help as many other people and footballers as I can to plan for their financial future, so that they are in the position to take control of their lives and do more of the things they really want to do.

Hi, I'm Tommie Hoban
After spending 10 years as a professional footballer, I retired from the game and began my journey towards being a financial planner.
The only reason I was able to do this was down to the expert financial planning I had throughout my life and some of the crucial decisions that were made early on.
