BBC School Report

Today we got the chance to interview two of Notts County’s finest players - Shola Ameobi and Lewis Alessandra.

Lewis told us he wished he had concentrated more in school as a "back-up plan".

We asked Shola if he has a sibling rivalry with his footballer brother Sammy, and he answered: “I love it when we both score goals but I have always had the urge to help him improve, especially with the 11-year age difference.”
