How long have you been playing Flag Football?
I started playing footie 3.5 years ago.

How did you come to join the Manchester Crows?
I ended up joining the Crows by some sort of beautiful accident.

If you weren’t playing Football, what sport would you be involved in?
Anything that used to be shown really early on Sunday mornings on Channel 4 like Kabaddi or sumo wrestling etc.

What is your favourite pre-game meal?
Pre-game meal is McDonalds porridge.

What is your favourite cookie?
Cookie Fleck from the film “Best in Show”.

What is your favourite Manchester Crows photo?

There’re a lot of awesome pics, most taken by Mr Brewerton, but I love this one, a) because it’s hilarious and b) Nige has pulled both flags, just a little too late. BALLER!

The most underrated Crow is…
Most underrated Crow is every Crow. No one in the league believes in us accept ourselves, we are usually the only ones shouting about us, but we have been improving year on year.

The funniest moment from last season was…
Funniest moment of the year was THAT pic [above] of Nige double flagging Alan Mead .

Which team(s) do you look forward to playing against?
I love the Manchester derbies against the Titans (particularly as it’s been a while since we lost one) and anytime we get to play the Vipers that’s usually a lot of fun too.

Which Crow has the worst pre-game routine?
Nick and his pre-game tape up then detape then poop then tape up again better be the answer.

An interesting fact about yourself?
I’ve played a goalkeeper in a Puma advert with Sergio Aguero.

My goal for this season is…
I want the team to make the playoffs again and personally make the GB silver team or lead the league in sacks next year.

Who is your NFL counterpart?
I would love to say I am a Jordy Nelson but I’m probably an Edleman because I play both sides of the ball, throw a nice pass once in a blue moon and I have a beard.
