What do you remember about your first ever match?
I made my debut for Bury against Darlington. We won 1-0 and I scored the winner - a good memory.

Who was your childhood hero?
Paul Gascoigne. I just liked the way he played the game.

When did you realise you had a chance to progress in the game? 
I loved to play football as a kid and I got the chance at young age, making my debut at 18. I've never looked back since.

Which coach has had the biggest influence on your career?
David Flitcroft, who is now assistant manager at Barnsley. I played alongside him in my early days and he also coached me, giving me the confidence to believe in myself.

What did you spend your first wage packet on?
It wasn't very much but I probably bought some rascal gear (clothes).

Does your squad number have a special meaning to you?
Yes, 16 is my birthday. I've tried to have it at every club.

Who did you last swap shirts with?
I got Adel Taarabt's when I played against Queens Park Rangers in the cup last year.

How has the game changed for the better since you became a pro?
A lot more teams have adopted the European way of playing - playing a lot more football.

If you could have coached yourself when you were a teenager, what advice would you have passed on?
Just to keep your feet on the floor and explain that you never stop learning, you learn every day.

If you stay in the game at the end of your career, what will you do? a) Manager b) Coach c) Scout d) Physio e) Pundit?
I don't think I'll be a coach. I think I'll probably just be a kit man.

What do you want to be best remembered for at the end of your career?
Just that I gave 110 per cent every game.
