“It looks good at the moment for us but we need to keep going.


“I’ve enjoyed working with the manager a lot.

“Man-to-man, he’s fantastic, dealing with different kinds of situations. He is very calm, probably because he has seen it all before and knows exactly what to do.

“He’s just a great person to be around.”
