After the final whistle, as The New Saints FC beat Mold Alexandra 9-0 in the JD Welsh Cup, I interviewed Lewis Dutton. I’ve chatted with the young ‘keeper a number of times in recent months, but this was one special, as he had just made his first team debut.
In addition to the main video below, there’s also a blooper that you can watch beneath that. I always check with the players before posting these, as the last thing you want to do is embarrass anyone.
Relationship and trust is important when you work in football media. On that front, Lewis calls me ‘Rev’ on seven occasions during the interview. A good relationship with players makes them more comfortable, and you get the best from them, as they feel more relaxed.
