His Vision for Dollingstown Reserves
– When I met Hubert and Scoby, it was impossible not to be impressed with the club and the facilities available.  The plans ahead for the club are very exciting and I want to be part of helping to turn those ambitions into reality.
– In my role as player manager, I hope to build a squad that possesses a healthy blend of youth and experience.  My target is to create a competitive team that can breed a winning mentality within an enjoyable and nurturing environment but alongside that, I would like to recruit and develop players that can feed into our first team, and I believe that my experience of playing at Championship & Premier Intermediate Level can help me to do that.
