The people, especially the club's supporters. I'm so pleased that they are able to share in the football club's success.

A five-a-side competition winners trophy which took place at Codnor carnival in the under-11 section. I was eight years old at the time, playing for Codnor boys.

Waiting too long before trying to get a loan move from Derby County.
