To go on to establish a very successful goalkeeping career in the professional game, I would like to make a move to the English Premier League and play football week in and week out.

What are your biggest Strengths as a Goalkeeper:
One of my many strengths as a goalkeeper is my distribution from my hands and feet – especially volleys – being able to pick players out at any point on the pitch. This allows me and my defenders to be confident when playing the ball back to my feet and has been an area of praise from coaches and parents in the past. As well as my distribution, my handling is very good, I am very vocal and able to control the back four in the way I want and feel confident with my overall game.


What is the best game you have ever played in and why:
Milk Cup Globe Final against County Londonderry, even though we were defeated 4-1 the experience of going to another country and getting to live the life style of a professional was the greatest experience ever. The game was a massive achievement for me and having my name read over tannoys was amazing! I feel I had a very positive game but it was always going to be hard playing against a team playing on their home turf.

If a Scout or Coach was reading this profile why should they contact you:
If they are looking for a goalkeeper who is tall and brave with great distribution, confidence and a good all round ability and attitude then I’m the keeper they should contact! I so badly want to be a professional goalkeeper and hope I get the chance to leave school and move away to follow my dream, I won’t let anything stand in the way of my future!
