Who’s been your best interviewee & why?

I’ve got a few. Martin Johnson, England’s World Cup-winning captain.
Brian Clough, the now sadly departed former Nottingham Forest manager.
Jose Mourinho, manager of Chelsea.

All of them were extremely successful and had something good to say. 

What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve said on-air?

Trying to say "on the pitch" and swearing would probably be up there. 

What’s been your career highlight?

Commentating on the Rugby League’s Super League Grand Final.

How do you spend your time away from the microphone?

Playing golf mainly. I still like to play football and rugby every now and again but don’t get that much time to train. And going to the cinema.

Favourite place in South Yorkshire or North Derbyshire – and why?

BBC Radio Sheffield - it pays my wages. 

As a 10-year-old child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I’ve wanted to be a sports journalist since I was about six and watching the World Cup on TV.

Who would you like to be trapped in a lift with?

The lift engineer.

Favourite food & drink?

Steak or Pasta. Drink, lager.

What do you never miss on television?

24, Match of the Day, Soccer AM.  

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Take a year out and travel the world.
