EX-HEREFORD United striker Jarrod Bowen scored for Hull City today in the EFL Championship.

The Leominster star equalised in a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on the opening day of the 2017/18 season.

It was Bowen's first senior goal for Hull and he went straight over to his father Sam and other family members to celebrate.

Afterwards, the 20-year-old said it was his mother's birthday, making the day extra special for him.

“All my family were at the game so I was looking for them straight away when I scored," Bowen told Hull's official website.

“My little sister was there, my little brother, little cousins, nan, auntie.

"I think they got a minibus with my grandad driving! It was also my mum’s birthday so she was in the Hull end.

“Dad was there as well.

"My dad is a Villa fan so I am not sure who he wanted to win.

"A draw with me scoring was probably the best outcome for him.

“He said he was going to run on the pitch if I scored, but he couldn’t get on. I saw him come down the steps though and just grabbed him.

“I couldn’t really control my body.

"I wanted to celebrate as much as I could.

"I had to move a few stewards out of the way to get to them, but it was great for all my family to be there for my first Hull goal.”
