29 (I turn 30 later this month!)
29 (if I had Grindr). What is the point in lying about your age!
Coleraine, Northern Ireland. Home of James Nesbitt and a raft of sports stars.
When did you join VMFC:
That long ago it is hard to remember! It was in 2006.
Former clubs, if any:
None. A 'one club man' me!
Greatest Village moment:
It is a tough choice between two. Winning the GFSN Cup as captain in 2007 is the greatest moment but winning EuroGames in Budapest in a 9,000 seater stadium was pretty special too!
[Note from the editor - there weren't 9,000 people there!]
What club do you support:
Favourite Village bar:
As long as it serves adequate beer then I am happy! If pushed I would say Via.
What do you do for a living:
Admin/Communications for a recruitment company.
Do you participate in any other sports:
Nope. Played rugby when I was younger (everyone does in Northern Ireland) but I am too precious for that now!
What else do you do to relax:
I love reading and always have a book on the go. I also play FIFA and Football Manger. And having a beer and catch up with mates always relaxes me too.
Current favourite song:
Depends on what mood I am in. Current stuff is good but one song that always puts a smile on my face and that I listen to a decent amount, even though it isn’t current, is Euphoria by Loreen.
Current favourite TV show:
All time favourite film:
Not really a film person but Titanic is always a good watch.
Touchy subject that currently…
Favourite footballer (for football reasons):
Favourite footballer (not for football reasons):
Preferred position (on the pitch!):
Describe your playing style:
Strong, competitive, always give 100%
Premiership player your style most matches:
Jamie Carragher – not the most talented but does a very good job!
What made you want to try VMFC out for the first time:
I had recently come out and wanted to get some more gay mates. Plus I had never played for a team before and wanted to play competitive football.
Why should new players join VMFC:
Joining VMFC is one of the best things I have done since moving to Manchester nearly 12 years ago. I have made some brilliant mates, been on football trips away that have taken me to places I may not have otherwise seen, played in stadiums I could only have dreamed of and I have had the chance to play competitive football for a team that is actually quite good. Why would anyone not want to join that?!
