How did your move come about?

Previously played under Dean Bamforth at Handsworth last season and he asked me to sign and met Scott for a chat and i’ve enjoyed every minute since. 

When did you first sign for Hallam?

Start of September 2017, just in time for a Tuesday night trip to Hull!

Personal target for rest of the season

Obviously I want to play well but I’d love us to reach the play offs and get promotion 

Is there a team target for this season?

Get into the play offs. We're more than good enough as a squad but we have just got to get a good run going and hope other teams drop points. 

Does the sloping pitch at Sandygate have any bating on your game?

Yeah i think it effects everyone, especially at the moment with the weather, just a mud fest!  

Any stand out or favourite moments while playing for Hallam?

Scoring equaliser in the FA Vase on the Sunday and then winning the replay with a bare squad in Manchester on the Tuesday 

Do you have any pre-match superstitions?

None that i can think of!
