Jimmy Over Excited For Potential Debut

8 February 2014

Striker Jimmy Spencer cannot wait for Saturday, when he could make his Notts County debut against Coventry City at Meadow Lane.

Spencer joined Notts after leaving Huddersfield Town – a club where he had grown up, having been on their books since the age of nine. 

The 22-year-old opted to depart the John Smith’s Stadium before his contract was set to expire at the end of this campaign due to a desire to play first team football.

Spencer had grown tired with his free weekends but, now part of the County ranks, he can look forward to playing a role in helping the club to climb out of the bottom four in the remaining 16 games. 

“To have left Huddersfield permanently is a bit weird but I had to leave on my own behalf to play football,” he told Magpie Player. 

“I was training for no game at the weekends and it was hard to get by like that, so I wanted to come here to show that I can play League 1. 

“I’m looking forward to it because the games are coming thick and fast and we’re looking to get wins and get out of that relegation zone to put this club where it should be.

“I’m here to score goals and I’ll give 100 per cent because I’m playing for another contract at the end of the season.

“I’m over excited and I cant wait to get started and no matter what I’ll give my all and I’m looking forward to it. 

“This is my job and what I do and I’m going to try and prove what I can do by getting goals in this league.

“I’ve got a target of how many goals I want but I’ll let you know when I hit that target.”
