Q: How did you first get into football?

A: I am one of four brothers and both my father and my uncle Tony played at Coleraine and Finn Harps, so football was in the house. Myself and my brothers joined a team called Creggan Celtic which had been set up by a man called John McGilloway. That was our first taste of football.
