Not necessarily at Town and simply not winning anything, ever.

Would you look back on your career and think "well that was a complete waste of time" or would you be too busy counting how many houses you have purchased?

The latter. You got to make a career out of your hobby and it means you probably never have to experience the drudgery of most people’s office lives. If you can retire at 35 it’s a pretty successful career I’d say.

Come the end of your career, most would probably think about individual success rather than trophies. Obviously if say Chambers you've spent your whole career in the top 2/3 leagues of football, then you've had a good career.

I saw Jon Stead won his first trophy in his final match, which will be the icing on the cake for him. But I doubt he would have thought he wasted a career without it.

Stead is a good example of a good career without winning much. He won the play offs with Harrogate as well.

Agree with the OP though, it must be disappointing not to have a promotion on your CV or something to say you were there. A career playing for mid table teams might be better than sitting in an office but I would imagine there's some legitimate regret.

99% of pro players aren’t amassing property empires. Getting paid handsomely to play footy every week is a win itself.

If you find yourself single with £5k a week income, you have to be buying a house/flat every other month on a buy-to-let mortgage don't you?

It's all relative, I only ever played for fun, so could envy someone who played top division Sunday morning stuff.

Even if someone played L2 all their career with no trophies they've still been more successful than someone who never rose above National League who may have won some minor cup competition.
