Woolery Thrilled After Dream Debut

Striker Elated To Be Off The Mark

12 August 2017

Kaiyne Woolery was thrilled to open his account for Town after enjoying a dream debut against Exeter City.

The striker, who arrived from Wigan Athletic for a fee of £350,000 last week, was brought on at half-time earlier today alongside Luke Norris with the Reds trailing 1-0.

The double change worked a treat as Norris sent Woolery clean through on goal and the striker did the rest to make it a debut to remember.

“It is a big relief to get off the mark so quickly. I’ve come here to score and I’m just happy to get the first one,” he said.

“I’m disappointed we didn’t get the three points because we could have nicked it at the end, but obviously I’m happy to get my first goal.

“I thought our second-half performance was good, there was a lot of energy and the boys knew we were behind and we didn’t want to let the fans down, so we pulled together and we should have got another goal.

“I should have scored another one, I know that, but we’re still unbeaten and it is a positive.

“Anyone will enjoy a goal but to score in-front of the home fans on my debut was a big relief.

“I haven’t had too much time to work with Luke Norris but he put it right on a plate for me and invited me to go and shoot and score, so I’ve got to thank him for that.

“The atmosphere was good, the crowd was pushing us on and I thought we should have got all three points.”

“It is a big relief to get off the mark so quickly. I’ve come here to score and I’m just happy to get the first one."

Woolery was introduced at half-time and the frontman felt 45-minutes was just what he needed after not getting a proper pre-season under his belt.

“I think 45-minutes was about right. I haven’t really played in about three weeks and I didn’t want to jump into a game and maybe let the team down.

“The gaffer made the right decision.

“When I was at Wigan the gaffer didn’t want me to get injured so I didn’t really play that much, so it affected my pre-season.

“I’m happy I’ve signed here now and I can get some minutes.”
