So, where are you playing at the moment?
Do you still look for the Diamonds’ results?
Yes, of course, I look out for all of my old clubs.
How would you compare the current side to the side that you played in?
It’s difficult to say as I haven’t seen much of the games these days so couldn’t really say, hopefully I’ll get up and see a few games when I finish playing as I still have a few friends in the area.
Who was your favourite team mate at Rushden?
Andy Burgess (spike), Richard Butcher (wiggy), but the whole squad were great lads. I had a great time at a really good club.
Do you keep in contact with any other ex Diamonds?
Yeah a few, like Burge and Tarkan Mustafa.
Do you think the club can return to the Football League one day?
No reason why not at all, it’s got a great set up which is taylor made for the league so fingers crossed it’ll happen soon.
