Leicester's Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall on emulating Paul Scholes, staying resilient and beating rivals Nottingham Forest

Leicester's Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall on emulating Paul Scholes, staying resilient and beating rivals Nottingham Forest

Tell Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall as he sweeps the board at Luton's 2020/21 player of the season awards that within 18 months he'll have played more than 50 times for his boyhood club and started both legs of a European semi-final. Would he believe you? Quite possibly, as it happens.

That loan spell at Kenilworth Road was where the penny dropped. A late bloomer throughout his youth career and still 5ft 3ins until a growth spurt around his 16th birthday, Dewsbury-Hall had found himself up against it more often than not.

Approaching his 23rd birthday, he still had not made a single league appearance for his parent club Leicester - but fighting adversity had long harboured a level of determination in the midfielder. With the reassurance he could mix it at Championship level, he saw no reason why he couldn't go one better back in the top flight.
