Ex-Arsenal midfielder Wilshere eager to build on positive start with Bournemouth

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere wants to continue performing with Bournemouth in the Championship.

Wilshere signed as a free agent this winter, and is hoping to make a mark at the club to resurrect his career.

He scored in the FA Cup win over Crawley on Tuesday, and hopes he can show his quality in the league as well.

He told the Bournemouth Daily Echo: "I'm happy to have got my first game, my first start, my first hours of football in a long time and now I just want to progress from here.

"I want to use this as a benchmark. I scored a goal, I want to score some more and I want to play in a successful team that is winning games and pushing for promotion.

"When I first came down here three or four weeks ago, I felt really comfortable and there was a smile on my face again. I knew pretty quick that it was something I wanted to do and I wanted to be here.

"I'm glad that the club wanted me and gave me an opportunity and now I want to repay them with some good performances and try and get this club in the Premier League."
