If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? The Finnish goalkeeper Antti Niemi

Teach Mhici

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?

Which character in any film are you most like? P.T. Barnum from The Greatest Showman or Wolverine.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Just a load of left-handed gloves


Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
Michael Carroll or Seaghan Ferry

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Don’t think I’m allowed to say.

Who is the worst/best trainer? Michael Carroll is definitely the worst trainer, all he does is give out! Best trainer would have to be Niall Friel.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Eamonn Collum.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Best person would have to be Gavin McBride. The worst person would have to be Eamonn again, always has his music blaring.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Definitely the worst would have to be Michael Carroll again, from what I know he survives on a day-to-day basis on skittles, bacon and tea. The best diet I would say would be James Carroll, the guy is a finely tuned athletic machine.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Conor Glass

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? “They’re all a bunch of hypochondriacs”

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Tom Beag Gillespie and SP Barrett

Best ever performance? Ulster Minor Prelim vs Tyrone

One to forget? Ulster semi vs Derry

Sporting ambition? To prove that people under the standard height can play at the highest level

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Steven Gerrard

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Would definitely bring in Daniel Clarke from Naomh Colmcille or Conor Doc from Kilcar.
