“Wow, what an occasion! It’s difficult to explain what emotions I was going through, but I do know that I was nervous, almost afraid.

"Getting onto the pitch and having my first touch calmed me down a little bit, but the nerves didn’t leave me until I left the field because I’ve always wanted to play in the Derby,” Sam told Pirates’ website.
