Bolton defender Cahill still in touch with junior club AFC Dronfield

Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill admits he's come a long way from his junior days.

As a teenager he played Sunday football for Sheffield side AFC Dronfield and he still stays in touch with the club.

"All my friends played for them, so I went along and signed up," he said.

"Off the back of that I was scouted at under-14 level by a number of clubs, including Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday, Derby and Aston Villa, who I eventually signed for.

"I still call in and visit whenever I'm around the area and have helped out in training and had a kick about with some of the younger groups.

"It's amazing if you go back all those years and think of where you are now.

"I am very proud of what I have achieved. I was very proud the other night with playing, getting a result and my goal."
