Quick Change - 15/08/2002

After the trip to Bosnia, we arrived home around lunchtime, and then it was a case of getting prepared for the friendly at Durham City. It seemed very strange starting the day in an army camp in Sarajevo and then a few hour later pulling on my boots at New Ferens Park. Iíd only played a couple of minutes in the Champions League so it was important to get a bit of a run out.

The facilities at Durham City were very good, certainly better than those experienced 24 hours earlier. I hadnít had much sleep at all, so I was feeling pretty tired, however I played for the first sixty in a midfield holding role. Iíd played there for Bolton and itís a role a feel comfortable playing, having said that, first and foremost Iím a left back. I did manage to get a shot on target and always nice to score, but itís Monday night Iím looking to and hopefully Iíll be involved.
