The first person born after me to play for Newcastle. The day it hit home I'd not be a pro. 

 

I still clinged to hope long after that happened for me.

 

The day it really hits home is when people younger than you start retiring!

Brittain was seriously injured playing for Gateshead against Hayes & Yeading United on 5 September 2009. Brittain broke both his tibia and fibula  and required a morphine injection to ease the pain. The game was abandoned after a 40-minute delay to treat the injury as Brittain's teammates refused to restart the game due to the shock of seeing the severity of the injury. At the time of the injury, the score was 0-0 with 14 minutes left to play. The Football Conference awarded one point to each team with Gateshead's point deducted for "failing to fulfil an engagement".

 

Brittain returned to action on 8 July 2010, scoring the opening goal in a 3-2 defeat against a Middlesbrough XI in a behind closed doors friendly.
