Not any more, I used to when I was younger.

The Killers and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds at Hyde Park.

15. Who do you room with on away trips? 
Bill [Bodin], he is my buddy. I played with him at Torquay United so we know each other well.

It’s an honour, it’s a passionate club.

Golf.

No one really, they are all the same to me.

19. Can you do impressions of anyone?
With this accent? My accent is horrendous, so it’s a no.
