You are Matlock born and bread, how does it feel to play for your hometown club ?

Its an honour and privledge.

You had a family member who once played for Matlock Town as well, could you tell us a little about that ?

My mums uncle David Wood played for the club

Your performances have come in for high praise recently from Mark Atkins and the fans especially for your performance against Grantham Town in the Doodson Cup, do you feel that your hard work over the years is beginning to pay off ?

Definitely worth it.

We’ve seen you play on the wing and at the back during your years in the Under 19’s and Reserves but what do you think is your best position ?

I think Left Wing Back

As a child before joining the club, did you ever come down and watch games at Causeway Lane ?


In an ideal world, what would you like the future to hold for yourself in terms of football ?

Hopefully to go higher

Have you got a message for the fans ?

After my debut against Carlton Town I was overwhelmed by the support on and off the pitch from the the home fans and i hope to continue to play well for Matlock and especially them.
