What is your favourite club?

The world smallest but biggest club Millwall FC

What sporting moment lives longest in the memory?

Well supporting Millwall most weekends are a disappointment to be honest but I have been lucky enough to see Millwall at the old Wembley twice and the new Wembley 4 times but the 2004 FA Cup run all the way to the final vs Manchester United, I went to every single game in that cup run including 2 postponed fixtures versus Telford! Including a trip to Budapest to watch us in the UEFA Cup, so that whole year was my best and longest memory so far!

What’s your favourite book or film?

I always like to read sporting autobiographies, always good to see in the mind of a great sportsman.

Who is your sporting idol?

Growing up I was a centre midfielder and number 8 and that was all down to Paul Gazza Gascoigne! I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago and he didn’t disappoint.

My club hero for me is Timmy Cahill.

Which sporting events do you most look forward to?

I am huge fan of most sports but to name a few that I most look forward to would be:

Euros / World Cup, The Ryder Cup, The Lions Tour, The Ashes + Six Nations

What phrase do you live your life by?

Get back up, Dust yourself off and Box the hell on!
