Barry lining out for Rockview.

What is your proudest moment in the game? Winning the Father Davis cup.

What do you think of the facilities for soccer in Newry & Mourne? I think a lot more could be done as local clubs are paying a lot of league fees which could go into making the pitches a lot better.

If you were down to your last £20, what would you spend it on? A good old Kens Chinese.
