What do you think of the facilities for soccer in Newry & Mourne? I think there is definitely some room for improvement in regards to pitch maintenance, around this time of year some pitches can be dangerous and cause injuries.

A team player who would put his body on the line week in, week out. Is there any local player (past or present) that you would like to emulate? Hugh Finnegan, the man is playing well into his 40’s and is still contributing at a high level. What word best describes you as a football player? Tenacious. You’re stranded on a desert island, what are your three essential items? I-Pod with all my favourite music, films and an ever lasting battery, a bed and… toilet roll! If you were down to your last £20, what would you spend it on? If its on a Saturday it’s probably beers, a lotto ticket and enough to get in somewhere.
