It would be nice to give Reece Glover a clean sheet once in a while!

There have been some very memorable moments over the time I have been at North Down but the best has to be listening to Jamie Orr’s wholehearted attempt of a Wonderwall cover at the recent table quiz.

Who has been your favourite player to play with at North Down and why?

My favourite player to play with so far has been Chris Speers. Chris albeit probably doesn’t feel the same way towards me as my greed takes over sometimes. However he always knows how to get a bite out of the opposition and the drag flicks come in handy too.

Least favourite has to be ******.  Don’t think I need to justify myself and can anyone guess who it is?

Who in your North Down team would you want, and who not, on your quiz team?

Paul Adgey has a good track record winning both the last two North Down table quizzes so ideally he would be in there. I would not want Jamie Orr in my team, he just doesn’t have enough time to study between being a baker and barista!

Do you follow a particular football team?

I follow Manchester United but ideally I can watch them instead when he football comes back?

Football is another sport I am interested in and with the occasional Eddies Five aside appearance, I wouldn’t say that counts as playing

What is the best holiday you have ever had?

Going on tour with Regent in 2018 to Edinburgh, not the best destination but still had a unreal time.

Where is your ideal holiday location?

Zante if it doesn’t get cancelled this summer, always next year….

I have a playlist for every genre, so I guess I just like all music, except for techno obviously. But my most listened to on Spotify is Post Malone!

No other show comes close to The Chase. I will never respect anyone who takes the low offer!

Happy Gilmore would be my favourite, it’s safe to say it’s a classic.

Favourite food has to be a burrito, Boojum just can’t be beaten, and my favourite drink has to be a well crafted fruit smoothie.

Tyson Fury, LeBron James, Phil Templeton and Post Malone

What have you been doing to stay fit during the coronavirus break?

Getting back into my running and doing some stuff from home, but my Strava posts will always be in the shadow of Chris Drysdale’s!
