Accrington Stanley midfielder Jay Harris has revealed the fantastic atmosphere at the club persuaded him to join the reds and move to The Fraser Eagle Stadium.
The former Everton trainee completed his switch earlier this week after impressing Stanley manager John Coleman during a trial. A trial in which he bagged his first goal in the red and white strip of Accrington Stanley against Blackpool. (click here for Blackpool match report)
"Hopefully I will get a few more in the season and keep progressing," he told the Accrington Observer.
"It will be hard to get my place as they are all quality players but if I keep going and score more goals, hopefully the manager will pick me in the side every week.
"I watch a lot of football and know a lot of the teams and some of the players in League Two, so I just hope I will be selected and can make an impact."
The 21-year-old has shown his shock of the interest that players and fans pay in him. He was dissapointed after Everton released him but admits the interest shown has made him fell better.
"I am made up to come here. All the fans, players, the manager and the chairman - everything about the club is great. There is no negativity, everything is positive," Harris added.
"It was hard when I was released from Everton as I was let down by a few clubs, so I am just made up that they wanted to take me on here. I would love to press on here and hopefully we can go up again."
