No, though a few lads do try to call me Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Worst dress sense at your club?

There are definitely a few, but I'd say the most noticeable is Paul Dickson. He has a few pairs of flaired jeans, but he also wears this pair of futsal trainers that I have seen him in since day one. I think he's afraid of change!

Biggest joker?

There are a lot of jokers at the Welders. It's like meeting up every week with your best week. No-one takes things too seriously. But if I had to pick one, it would be Dan McMurray - he's always messing about.

Pre-match meal?

I wake up and have a coffee, usually followed by a fry.

Post-match pints?

Into the Welders club afterwards - it's got to be done. They don't have Coors on tap yet, but I'm working on it!
