Breska Rovers Debut (Adult Level): I think it was when I was 16, under Dermot Doolan. I came on against St. Ita’s at home with about 20 mins to go. I set up to a goal. It ended up 2-2. I also got smashed in a tackle early on and these old guys couldn’t hack my pace.

Football advice you would give a 10 year old: Give 100% for everything, a 50/50 ball or a 50 yard sprint for a hopeless ball. Never give up and always have that fire in your stomach to be successful in life and soccer.
