Mee hopes for Man City breakthrough

Ben Mee hopes he gets a first team chance at Manchester City under new manager Mark Hughes.

The England U19 defender told City's website: "I went to Germany for the pre-season camp until my call-up (for the European Championships) and that was a good experience. The new Manager has come in and set down an early marker for us all.

"He's been tough with us at the start of this pre-season and that's been good to help get our fitness back. It can only be a good thing because we've got an early game, which is of course a competitive one, trying to qualify for the UEFA Cup.

"It's a fresh start for me coming up from Platt Lane to Carrington and it's a good time for me and the other lads to show what we can do and impress the Manager. It's a good opportunity for everyone.

"It's been a good few months experience-wise, I've done quite a bit over the last few months, so hopefully I can keep gaining experience and move on further and further."
