"I was on the bench for the champions league final for Liverpool in 2007. I didn't get to appear. I was disappointed not to appear. I was at my wit's end. I had a mate working in Sierra Leone. and he said why don't you come out and see me. I fell in love with the place. It really scared me but I felt I had to do something. If I didn't I'd regret it for the rest of my life.”
"To play in the league they must go to school, it's not about football it's about education.. it's been a massive success, truancy rates have gone down, UNICEF say it's one of the best things that has happened to Sierra Leone"
"Everyone here has a story about the war, with a war that's only 10 years old you are bound to have people who are affected by it. . But what I love about the people of Sierra Leone is that they see a future for themselves l fully support projects in Sierra Leone and wish Peter his colleagues and the young people from Cardiff every success with their project in which l'm sure will make a huge difference to children in the country”
