After being named in the starting line-up for the 0–0 pre-season draw against Torquay United – alongside Norburn – Teammate Peter Hartley revealed that the midfielder's qualities have shone in training, and it's positively affecting the entire squad. “Ollie is technically a very good player,” said Hartley. “You could see that from the moment he stepped on the training field. “He likes to handle the ball, and he is more than capable of taking the ball under pressure. It brings the confidence out in the rest of the team, and helps us believe in playing the way we want to play. “It is great to have Ollie on board. He is a cracking lad as well as a good player, and only 21, so I think there will be a lot more to come from him.”
