NS “What has been your highlight at the club so far”?
AP “On a personal note winning the Non-League Yorkshire December player of the month award was brilliant for me. But I would have to say when we stayed up and performed that miraculous escape last season, nobody expected us to do it and for all the hard work and graft we put it in over those months it was a brilliant feeling to accomplish what everyone said we couldn't”.

NS “Has any one player and match stood out during your time here”?
AP “It's a tough one for stand out players, because all the lads have been brilliant. But simply because I don't feel he gets the plaudits he deserves, I would say Leigh Overton. He has been brilliant since he came in, his shot stopping is ridiculous and has got us more than 10 points alone this season”.
“As for matches I could say Farsley Celtic again, but for other reasons I will go with Colwyn bay away from home. To go there and get a 2-0 win with such a classy performance was something special. As for the journey home with the fans and the lads, that was something else! Not something I have seen in non-league before and that's why it stands out in my mind so much”.

NS “What are your personal ambitions for the rest of your career”?
AP “For me personally I want to be playing professional football again. I am loving playing football again so I want playing at the highest standard I possibly can. Playing back in the league is definitely my biggest personal ambition”.
