Thanks to our Minor Captain Colin Barrett for taking part in our latest interview.

Colin has played for Moorefield all the way through the underage ranks and has also represented the club at Under 21 and Senior B level.

He has been rock solid in the Moorefield defence throughout the league and championship campaign this year and is a hugely committed and dedicated player who leads by example both on and off the pitch.
