Music and football are what scores of lads are passionate about.
And one 24-year-old from Watford is pursuing these passions by hosting a new live music night that could save his football club.
Adam Hills is bringing three local bands to play at the home of Wealdstone FC and he is hoping for a 250 strong sell-out crowd whose entry fee will support the team.
"I want to give the local community the chance to see awesome bands in a decent venue, and it will benefit the football club. It's a win, win situation," says Adam.
Last year, Wealdstone FC moved to Grosvenor Vale in Ruislip - after almost a decade homeless - and invested a lot of money in it.
But the club has fallen on hard times since winning the non-league trophy double in the 80s, and it could struggle to survive without strong takings from the social club.
Adam to the rescue! For launch night he has pulled in three guitar bands who are already successful on the gig circuit and have strong, growing fan bases.
Headlining are The Fullertons, from Watford, who have been played on new music radio station XfM. The four-piece describe themselves as a cross between The Zombies, The Stranglers and Supergrass.
First on stage, though, are Lost Without Cause, a threepiece also from Watford. They've had airtime on MTV2 and have gigged in the London Astoria 2 and at Barfly in Camden, north London.
"We are really looking forward to playing," says Si from the band. "It's always nice playing new venues but an opening night has that special atmosphere."
The main support act is three-piece Kerfew, who have played London Astoria 2 and 12 Bar Club.
Adam has chosen these three bands to cater for a wide guitar-music following.
His own favourite band is the Sunshine Underground and he also likes indie-rock bands such as The Killers and Kasabian.
But he says: "It's not about my music taste. I'm putting on these gigs for other people. I want to keep it fresh and keep people coming back."
Adam thinks the local music scene really only offers '80s cheese and R'n'B'. He hopes his live music nights, which will run every six to eight weeks, will foster the guitar-music scene.
Eventually he wants to get out of his job in project management and set up a live music club.
"This is a stepping stone for me and I'm really enjoying it. I want to make sure I get a good crowd in there," he says.
He is already planning the second gig, which will be more rock-based, and there has been a "phenomenal response" from bands looking to play.
Adam's night, The Vale, opens on Friday, February 6, at the Ruislip Manor Sports and Social Club, Grosvenor Vale, Ruislip.
"February 6 is one of the most popular nights of the year because everyone has spent most of January at home skint after Christmas and New Year," he says.
"Everyone should come along and have a really good time."
