Toshack delighted for Hull fullback Ricketts

Wales boss John Toshack is delighted to see fullback Sam Ricketts win a Premiership chance with Hull City.

He said: "I am so pleased for Sam Ricketts, he is a super professional. We all have limitations in our game, even the best players.

"But four years ago he was at Telford, and when they went bust he was out of work.

"But he has come into international football and constantly improved.

"He has had good games, steady games and bad games. But you can never doubt his application. He has played 27 games now for his country, and never let anyone down.

"He went to Swansea and then got his move to Hull, and here he is now a Premier League player.

"I must admit that four years ago I did not believe that I would be able to say something like that, but I am delighted I am able to."
