Wingrove comes from a footballing family. His father played for Tottenham Hotspur and his cousin played for Arsenal.

As he grew older he learned more tricks and became part of a network of young football freestylers in the London area. In 2003, Wingrove entered the Nike freestyle competition in London Earl's Court, and out of 6,000 contestants, he reached the semi-finals, losing out to Hee Young Woo. Coca-Cola, O2, Barclaycard, Disney and Sky Sports have all since used Wingrove for promotions or advertising.

Solo career

In 2016, the F2 Freestylers debuted on television in the United States, with their series "It's Called Football" on the NBC Sports Network. Produced by Whistle Sports, the first two episodes premiered on December 26, 2016 and featured Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC.
