What is your proudest moment in the game? Winning the Mid Ulster shield. It was the first big final Crock (the manager) finally started me in. What do you think of the facilities for soccer in Newry & Mourne? Need to be improved as quickly as possible, – especially for junior football. A field with posts in it is not what children need.

Lazy. You’re stranded on a desert island, what are your three essential items? A million Pound, Kim Kardashian and a helicopter to get off the island. If you were down to your last £20, what would you spend it on? I would need to ask the wife for a lend of it first.
