"The environment is a special one and probably one of the best I’ve been involved in"

Cameron Burgess says that he always felt a part of the team after making his first start under Kieran McKenna at the weekend. 

The centre-back played the full 90 minutes and marked his return to the starting XI with a clean sheet, having replaced the injured George Edmundson in Town's 2-0 victory over Lincoln in the previous midweek.

Before that win over The Imps, Cameron was the only player in the senior squad not to have featured under the Blues' manager, but the 26-year-old says that he has enjoyed being part of a 'special' environment with Kieran and the coaching staff.

Reflecting on Saturday's start, he said: "It felt amazing. It kind of felt like making my debut again because I’d not played in a while! It felt really good to get back out there. 

"With the environment that the staff have come in and created, it’s not nice not playing but you still feel part of it. It’s strange because you’re frustrated with not playing but you’re still really happy with being involved and training hard.

"The training is good so you know that when your chance does come, you’ll be ready for it. The environment is a special one and probably one of the best I’ve been involved in.

"It’s about the characters we’ve got throughout the staff and throughout the players at the training ground, day in, day out. You keep your frustrations at bay, you train hard and work hard and you know you’ll get your chance."

The player that Cameron replaced against Lincoln, George, is now set for a spell on the sidelines having sustained ankle ligament damage.

"It’s not nice to see," he continued. "He’s a strong character so he’ll be back involved soon. 

"There is a good relationship between all of us, especially the lads at the back. Everyone is always wishing each other the best and wanting each other to do well."
