Everton defender Callum Connolly happy with first weeks at Fleetwood

Everton defender Callum Connolly is happy with his first weeks at Fleetwood Town.

The 23-year-old says he feels at home in Joey Barton's squad.

He told the club's website: “It's great to be back, I was here last year and it's great to be back in a Fleetwood Town kit, it was a tough one to take tonight and hopefully it's going to be a better season than last year and hopefully we can learn our lesson tonight where we can get going on push on.

“It's a friendly squad, there's a lot of Scousers, it's a great team where everyone is dead down to earth.

"The new lads that have come in are great and you can get along with everyone, you can see it on the pitch, and hopefully, when we keep on playing and training together it will one day click, and we can be a force."
