The defender has broken into the first-team picture over the last season or two and is hoping he can now maintain that position.

He said: "You don't get that with many teams in our league where youngsters are given a real try in the first team.

"But you can see it throughout the club, from our U18s to the reserves as well, we've got youth coming through all the way and that's really positive.

"We try to give youngsters as many opportunities as possible and they've all got the ability to play.
