FORWARD James Waite said he couldn’t have hoped for a better debut after coming off the bench to score the winner for Hereford against York City.

The Bulls were a goal behind at the break when the 19-year-old Cardiff City loanee came off the bench before netting the 80th minute winner.

“It was a great feeling on a personal note to get a goal on my debut but it was a good to help the team get a much-needed three points,” said Waite.

“It was a great result.

“We went with a bit of change of shape at half-time so we had to adapt to that but the message to me on a personal note was just to go on and try and change the game.

“Thankfully I hope I helped the team to do that and managed to get the three points. I tried to get in and around the box to support the play and try and get my shots off as often as I could.

“I couldn’t hope for much more a win, a big three points and a goal so I’m well happy with that.”

“It was a good move by Lloyd down the wing and he whipped the ball in. I just remember it coming just passed me so I took it on the swivel on my left foot and managed to find the right corner thankfully.

“I like to say I’m a bit of a goal scorer midfielder. The club spoke to me shortly before the window was about to close and I heard about the club and how much of a big club it is and got a taste of that pre-season.

“I wanted to push for it as much as I can and get here, thankfully I did.

When asked if he sees himself as a midfielder or striker Waite added: “I like to think I play in both either as a more advanced midfielder or maybe just playing off another number nine.

“Symons is a big threat in the air so it’s someone that I would like to play off and getting in and around the box.”
