Fulham’s Ben Pringle reveals QPR flatmate, enthusiasm for Game of Thrones, first wage, and other secrets

Whites winger on life off the pitch

It's personal: Ben Pringle

Ben Pringle was a Fulham capture from Rotherham United in the summer on a free - and wasted no time making an impact on the Whites left.

Two goals in 12 appearances, including a cracker against QPR in the west London derby two weeks ago, bodes well for a decent season.

But what of the private Pringle? The player opens up to GetWestLondon.

Pringle’s screensaver on his laptop is the famous aquarium in Dubai.

This was prompted by his last holiday, which was to the UAE resort.

Pringle can afford it now, but his first wage was as a £90-a-week scholar at West Brom in 2006, about half an hour’s work these days.

Start: WBA's home, The Hawthorns

His first car was a Renault Clio - it cost him £1,700.

Pringle’s last download was the award winning Game of Thrones. He didn’t say whether he is going to watch it in Westeros or Essos.

One of the winger’s best friends is former QPR winger Tom Hitchcock - son of ex-Chelsea and QPR goalkeeper coach, Kevin.

They shared a flat together at Rotherham when Hitchcock junior was on loan there in 2014.
