Fullarton: Give The Local Kids The Best Chance

24 January 2016

Prior to Saturday’s home game against AFC Wimbledon, Notts County first team manager Jamie Fullarton spoke with BBC Radio Nottingham’s Colin Slater in the club’s Wheelers Suite.

And his view of developing the club's younger players brought applause from those in attendance.

"You've got to make sure you give the kids in this area the first and best opportunity to play for this club. And that's a big drive for me -  we've got to make sure we're hot on the heels of the best talent in this area before we look outside of it."

Drawing on his international experience, Jamie told went on to tell Colin: "If you can play for your local club you get a similar sense - with the hairs standing up on your neck - when you play for them."
