His revelation of the last concert he went to might prove to be a bit of a surprise, whilst he also let’s us know who he rooms with.

1. What job would you have done if you hadn't been a footballer?
I just took a gamble on being a footballer, I had no idea if I didn’t make it!

2. Which club, apart from PNE, do you support?
Newcastle United.

3. Who was your football mentor growing up?
My mam and dad – I wouldn’t be where I am now without them, they took me training four or five nights a week and sacrificed a lot for me.
