“I’ve been here for a long time now and I’ve met some fantastic characters, some great people.
“If you give these kids a chance to open up and talk, more often than not, you know you’ve had a great day. These are going to be young men and women in a couple of years and if we can give them a decent foothold then that’s what’s important.”
