Michael Atkinson, twin brother of fellow Full Contact client Robert Atkinson, is a versatile midfielder who stands at 6ft 1 tall.

In addition to spending 5 youth seasons in French football, Michael has excelled in Futsal - working his way up to playing for Reading in the FA National Futsal Super League and the England u19 development squad.

Renowned for his work-rate, tackling and excellent distribution, Michael's first substantive experience of senior football was during the 2015/16 season when, in October, he joined Met Police Reserves - quickly becoming a regular starter for them whilst still playing what would prove to be his final season of Futsal. In the pre-season summer of 2016/2017 he trialled at Basingstoke Town - impressing such that he quickly made the first team starting XI as the start of the season arrived proper.

Under the management of Terry Brown, Michael appeared in some 45 or so games for Basingstoke's first team during the 2016/2017 season starting over 35 times - some feat for a player still only 18. The season culminated in a victorious Hampshire FA Senior Cup win against Bournemouth, where Michael impressed at Southampton's St Mary's stadium.
