Digital Sports Group are today launching the PFA Profile of Everton Defender Leighton Baines. DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk. It was today the turn of Leighton Baines to see his official PFA Profile.
The Everton and England left back started his career with Wigan Athletic, Baines has since moved to Everton and has become renowned as one of the country’s best full backs.
Baines initially began his career as a left-winger at the Liverpool Centre of Excellence as a boyhood Liverpool fan. He also represented the Merseyside boys team, but his career went no further at Liverpool. After interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers he joined Wigan Athletic. Baines made his debut for Wigan Athletic in 2002, and was a member of the team that won the Second Division in the 2002–03 season. He was a regular in the first-team when Wigan earned promotion to the Premier League in 2004–05. That season saw Baines score his first goal for the club, a long-range shot against Ipswich Town.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Baines will have no shortage of fans after his impressive performances for both Everton and England so far this season.”
“Of course a player with Baines’s talent requires a certain level of respect and responsibility and he is sure to be a major hit with fans on Facebook.”
Digital Sports Group will provide further PFA player profiles for every professional footballer in England as well as bring the the latest football results. The Leighton Baines Facebook Page is now live.
