By his own admission, Bobby Olejnik goes to training at Torquay smiling every day, saying he is living his childhood dream.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper arrived in Devon from Scottish outfit Falkirk in the summer, fulfilling a career-long ambition to play regularly in the English Football League.
And, despite being three-quarters of the way through the term, the Austrian is enjoying each day as if it were his first.
"I'm like a kid on his first day of school coming into training every morning," he said. "There's always a smile on my face when I wake up because this is something I always wanted to do.
"Playing in English football is something different, because of the fans, the atmosphere, what it feels like to play here. People get so involved in the game and that adds to it all.
"I always wanted to have a go at it, and when you get to do something you always wanted to do you're always going to enjoy it."
