Stuart Dallas has opened up about the family support that has helped him make it to the Premier League.

The Northern Ireland hero has been revelling in the celebrations after Leeds United were promoted from the Championship but, true to form, the humble 29-year-old has not forgotten those who set him on the road to glory.

Growing up, a young Dallas dreamt of playing in the top flight of English football and following in the footsteps of fellow Cookstown native Aaron Hughes, who was playing with Newcastle.
