The game is simple – it’s your dream weekend away from football and you decide everything.
Everton Ladies defender Faye Bryson recently sat down to play Perfect Weekend, choosing everything from destination, what she would do, where she would stay and more...
What destination are you picking?
Ocho Rios in Jamaica. I went there in the summer but absolutely loved the vibe, the people there and the views.
Who is coming with you?
I’ll take Dan Turner. She’s my best friend. Captain Fantastic! She actually came with me in the summer and it was a laugh every day for two weeks. Dan is the same kind of person as me so I think she’ll enjoy what I have planned for this weekend!
Where you staying?
I would love to say I am not materialistic – but I am! So anything five star!
How are you getting about?
If this is my dream weekend then I will pick a convertible Mustang. You need the roof down in that kind of weather don’t you? Although, when I went, I went on a horseback ride along the beach which was incredible, so maybe I’ll park the Mustang for an afternoon or two!
What food are you eating?
I love my Thai food but given we are in Jamaica, it has to be jerk chicken.
What activity will keep you busy?
I am a bit of a thrill-seeker so anything like that! One thing we did last summer which I would definitely do again was the Jamaican bobsledding. You go up to the mountain and toboggan down them. The views are amazing.
How are you chilling out?
On a nice beach, with great views and amazing weather. I can’t stay still too long though so I’ll have to do a bit of paddle boarding or water sports or something like that.
Who is joining you for dinner?
Anyone I want? Probably someone sporty. I’ll go for Danny Roberts, who is a UFC fighter. He’s a good-looking guy so he can be a bit of eye candy at the table. Dan Turner might be a third wheel!
What book are you reading?
I like reading about psychology and there is a book by Dan Abrahams called Soccer Tough which deals with that aspect of football. It tackles things like if a situation is going wrong on the pitch, how are you going to fix it, what does the next five seconds look like?
Which sporting event are you taking in?
I would love to go and watch the Super Bowl. I like watching American football and the whole vibe of it is amazing. The whole event of a Super Bowl is unbelievable.
What app are you using the most?
Instagram. One of my hobbies is photography so it has to be that one. I took my camera on our tour to Gibraltar in pre-season and got some boss shots!
Which personal item is essential?
I’m not sure! I’ll say my favourite pair of sunglasses. I’ll need those in Jamaica won’t I?!
Watch Faye in action for Everton Ladies against West Ham United at Southport's Merseyrail Community Stadium, October 28 2pm. Tickets available here.
