What do you think of the facilities for soccer in Newry & Mourne? To be fair, the pitches in Newry are really poor compared to the Mid Ulster and Belfast pitches. A big improvement is much needed – pitches here can’t deal with winter time and heavy rain. What would you liked to have achieved by the time you hang your boots up? I want to win the Mid Ulster, Junior cup and the Premier League. How would you like to be remembered as a footballer? I want to be remembered as an honest footballer, always played the shirt off my back every match and always gave 100%. Who is the best Carnbane player you’ve seen and why? I don’t have a best Carnbane player but there is a few good ones in the past. What word best describes you as a football player? Prepared. You’re stranded on a desert island, what are your three essential items? Super FT, 6 pack of Magners and sun lotion. If you were down to your last £20, what would you spend it on? 20 quids worth of Kens Chinese!
