Extract from the Carl Muggleton interview…
FOX: At what stage did you suspect that you would actually make it in the game?
CM: Well, funnily enough I think I realised when I got injured and had to have a cartilage operation when I was 15. John McVey was the physio at the time, and I had to go and see him and the club arranged for me to have the op and really looked after me. I thought, well they are looking after me well, they obviously want me.
They the club arranged for me to have one day a week at Belvoir Drive under goalkeeping coach Alan Hodgkinson, I had to drop a subject at school to fit it in. I was sort of an apprentice for a day so I’d have to do some jobs but then I would join in with the goalkeepers, Mark Wallington, Ian Andrews, Jerry Roberts. It was absolutely fantastic, sometimes I’d get to join in with the 5-a-sides with the first team players… Alan Smith, Gary Lineker. You didn’t get fed at Belvoir Drive in those days so we would end up catching a bus into town with Andy Feeley, have a sandwich and then eventually make my way back home and try and catch up with all the homework I hadn’t done.
After a year of that I was told I had got an apprenticeship, so it was head down and get on with the football after that.
