PREMIER League goalkeepers including WGC's David James are urging youngsters to avoid potentially fatal quarrying areas.

The former Sir Frederic Osborn pupil is joining Hull City's Boaz Myhill, Bolton Wanderers' Jussi Jaaskelainen and Wigan Athletic's Chris Kirkland, in throwing his safe hands behind the campaign.
