When and where did you first play hockey?

Regent House, I started as a right back but was apparently ‘too fast’ for that position so got fired up front.

 Have you played for any other hockey clubs?

Nope, North Down through & through.

How long have you been at North Down?

14-15 years I think, although I missed a year in there somewhere through broken bones.

Do you have any personal ambitions in hockey?

Not really to be honest, I’m 32 now so I guess just try and continue playing at a high level for a couple more years and also try to hit that 200 goal mark.

What has been your best moment at North Down?

The season I came back from injury and we won the league & cup double for the thirds was a hell of a year.

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

Me, Gilly & Mark Shannon up front for the seconds, what a time to be alive.

What is your least favourite team to play against?

I have a burning hatred for ****, like most normal people I think.  Can everyone guess – it’s an abbreviation!

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

Jamie Orr for both. The boy knows his Dingbats and even baked a banoffee for the last quiz, but on the same hand it’s Jamie.

Do you follow a particular football team?

Since I basically played in a Spurs kit for over a decade instead of regulation North Down gear, most people should know this.

What other sports are you interested in and do you play any other sports?

I used to skateboard a lot, but I’m getting a bit brittle for that now. Football, tennis, golf, I’ll have a go at anything and pretty much watch any sport that’s on.

What is your favourite personal sporting moment and a favourite all time sporting one?

As a Spurs fan I don’t have a lot of all time sporting moments, but I haven’t lost my sh*t like I did when Lucas scored that 94th minute winner against Ajax in a long time.

What is the best holiday you have ever had?

My honeymoon to Cape Verde Islands 4 years ago was the most relaxed I’ve probably ever been. I was away last May to a villa in Albufeira with all my best mates and their wives/girlfriends/kids which was also brilliant.

Where is your ideal holiday location?

Anywhere I can lie in the sun and do absolutely nothing sounds good to me.

What type of music do you like?

Mostly rock, punk, indie, metal. I don’t get the playlists on many hockey trips, let’s put it that way.

What is your favourite TV programme?

Same as Ross Blair here – Always Sunny in Philadelphia is hard to top. Shoutouts to The Office (US), Rick & Morty and the guilty pleasure Friday Night Lights as well.

What is your favourite movie?

Ace Ventura 2 – don’t @ me.

Have you a favourite book you have read again?

I don’t read unless I have to, movies with subtitles are even a push to be honest.

What is your favourite food and drink?

I couldn’t function at all without coffee. Pizza is probably my favourite food, but I’m missing a lot of good food due to this lockdown – what I would give for a Haptik lunch right now…

Full cream, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk?

Semi-skimmed as I’m not a sociopath.

If you could invite four people, living or dead, to a dinner party who would they be?

The 4 dogs I’ve had in my life – Patch, Juno, Willow & Harvey. Dogs are the best.

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

I’ve been trying to do a few 5ks a week. I had aimed to run 100k in April but as it’s now the 22nd and I’m only on 60k I don’t think I’ll make it.
