I wasn’t spotted I was recommended by someone who used to work at the club.

This is my sixth season – I was 14 when I joined.

From 14-16 it was Steve King who used to coach me and from 16-18 it was Ricky Duncan and Dave Huzzey and then after the Youth Team it’s been Kev who has helped a lot.

I like to think my dribbling, my passing and my attacking game really.

My consistency.

Believe in yourself even if no one else does.

Nike Mecurials.

I’d like to think I’m good at Pool but all the other boys think I’m not

Conor McGregor – he’s got elite mentality.

I’ve got a couple. At the moment it’s Norman Wabo and Michael Klass, maybe Lewis Gard. Maybe.

In my position as an attacking midfielder I want to say Neymar but in the Premier League at the moment I would say James Maddison.

Ronaldo

My debut against Cambridge United in the Checkatrade Trophy. It was such a good experience.

I am fluent in three languages and I’m learning a fourth one now.
