What’s your earliest memory in football?

Playing out on the front lawn at my granny’s house with my cousins when I was about six or seven. We lived quite close to each other so I would walk over to their houses, knock on their doors and ask them to come out.

What has been your best moment in football?

Playing in the U17 Euros last year for Ireland. It was a great experience and they were at home as well, so made it even more special.

What team did you support as a child?

Man United because my grandad was a big fan of them and they also had Roy Keane over there.

What trophy would you most like to win?

The World Cup.

Who are your best friends at Wolves?

Everyone really. We’re all close, but probably Theo [Corbeanu] and Pascal [Estrada].

Who is your funniest teammate?

Lee Harkin.

Who is your worst dressed teammate?

I don’t want to say Theo because everyone’s been saying him. I’m going to have to pick on someone else, so I’ll say Jed [Abbey] just to annoy him!

What are your hobbies outside of football?

I like playing golf.

What would you want to be if not a footballer?

I’d go back home and play Gaelic football. I won an All-Ireland under-15 championships when I was younger and was the sport I mainly played before football.
