What inspires you to play football? The enjoyment I get from playing all the time.
What is your least favourite training drill? I don’t really have a least favourite, they are all awful! Only joking they are all good!
Who has been the biggest influence in your career so far? My dad was the one who got me into football so it’s his fault I love it!
What brought you to play for Newry? I had always wanted to play soccer and when I found out about the team I came straight down!

And finally…What’s your favourite thing about playing for Newry? Definitely the craic we have and the people I have met, they are all great.
