New striker George Bowerman has said he’s hoping to continue to repay the faith shown in him by James Beattie after he found the net on his starting debut for the club.

The former Walsall striker scored our opening goal against Scunthorpe last weekend, and he’s obviously hoping it’s the first of many strikes and starts for the club as the 22 year old looks to really get his career underway.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph following the game Bowerman admitted that he was a little nervous when the gaffer said that he would be starting the match, but he knows he’s learning so much under Beattie on the training field that he trusted himself to do the job he was asked to do.

‘I was a little nervous because it’s been a long while, but there’s no better feeling than to score a goal. That’s what the gaffer brought me in to do so I’m just hoping I can repay him. The main point of coming to the club was that I can work with the gaffer, so fingers crossed he can keep improving me.’

Bowerman jokes that he’s been Accrington’s lucky charm since joining us, as we have remained unbeaten since but for him on a personal level that’s the life he’s known at the club, everything is positive and results have been going for us.

Hopefully results will continue in the same vain and we can continue creeping up the table as the season progresses.
