"I walked in to the dressing room and there were a lot of big characters who had done a lot in the game," Mount told the Daily Mail. "I am a kid. It's a test. So I am going round and shaking everybody's hand and he [Kashia] told me at the end of the season what he was actually thinking.
"He said to me later: 'I couldn't believe they had signed this tiny little kid. You looked lost and I couldn't believe we had signed you'.
"I probably looked scared and nervous and young and small. Which I was. But by the end of the season I had been voted Player of the Year by the fans and had scored 14 goals.
"I had grown so much and learned so much. For him [Kashia] to later say that he was wrong and that I had proved my worth meant a lot. It meant I had won that particular battle. I had met that challenge."
