He is happily married to his life’s love
Redmayne is blissfully married to Caitlin, the joy of his life, whom he dated for many years before marrying on June 18, 2018. The couple has a lovely kid called Poppy. The couple just purchased a new house. His wife raved over him, stating she is proud of him for the person he has grown into. She said that Redmayne exudes confidence in him that she has never seen before.
His penalty save helped Australia qualify for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022
Redmayne became a national hero in June after saving a penalty against Peru in the World Cup qualifying round. In the 121st minute, he came off the bench to replace Brighton’s Mathew Ryan as a substitute goalie. On every penalty shoot-out, Redmayne’s tactics of dancing around his goal line and moving from side to side to disrupt the opponent helped his team earn a spot in the World Cup. Redmayne recounted receiving a call from national goalkeeping coach John Crawley, who remarked before hanging up,
“Be prepared to save a penalty to advance us to the World Cup.”
He described the experience as bizarre when speaking on Australia’s Today Show. He described his situation as unusual since he had such a little part in what was a four-year campaign. He also said that he seems to be receiving all of the attention, which does not suit him, but he is content to play a little part. Redmayne nearly gave up football due to self-doubt, and he even had a tryout with Arsenal when playing youth football with both the New South Wales Institute of Sport and the Australian Institute of Sport.
The London club made him an initial offer
However, they eventually decided to withdraw the offer and sign Wojciech Szczesny instead, and Redmayne joined his local club, the Central Coast Mariners, as a backup goalkeeper. When he was playing for Western Sydney Wanderers with self-doubt in 2016, he stated it was all eyes on them and he didn’t believe he handled the pressure or focus of playing with so many eyes on the team. He also suffered criticism, which caused him to question himself.
It’s difficult to know there’s so much criticism and skepticism about oneself, he remarked in an interview. It was just too much for him. It was about this time that he lost interest in the sport and decided to abandon it. He and his wife discussed pursuing university degrees and becoming elementary school teachers. He had also taken a Barista course and was about to retire at the age of 27 to work at a friend’s café when Sydney FC signed him up. He went on to say that all he needed was an arm around him and that Sydney FC’s locker room was and still is one of the greatest he’s ever been a part of because it’s so soothing and caring. He rediscovered his love of football.
Redmayne’s net worth is believed to be approximately $2 million as of 2022.
