If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? I would have to say DJ Mal from our own town. What a guy.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory? Mick’s is a good shout after a game. The food is ready as soon as you walk in the door.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? I would have to say that Dunlewey’s is definitely the worst.

Which character in any film are you most like? James Bond.

Any odd items in your kit bag? No not that I can think of off the top of my head.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Doalty Boyle. He talks a big game but couldn’t kick snow off a rope.


Which team mate has the best looking other half? If I said that I would be shot.

Who is the worst/best trainer? Worst trainer is Dylan Boyle. Never on time. Best is Shane the Hat. He trains like it’s a game.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Definitely Dean Timoney. He’s always looking to see how his watch looks or his pointy brown shoes.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Best: Brendan Glackin – he really is a character. Worst is Shane the Hat – feel like I have already played a game of football before I get off the bus.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? I don’t know if anyone could say they have the best. I probably have the worst. I would eat myself if I was hungry enough.

Toughest opponent you have faced? Chris Greene. He’s like Peter Crouch in the air.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Charlie Doogan.

Best ever performance? I would say my first league game. Got a hat-trick on my debut.

One to forget? There’s been a few of them as well.

Sporting ambition? Just to play for whatever team I’m playing for.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be? I always tried to be like Wayne Rooney

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? I wouldn’t be a great manager for that kind of work.
