West Ham striker Fletcher: Debut everything I dreamed

West Ham striker Ashley Fletcher was thrilled with his Premier League debut this season.

The former Manchester United junior saw action at Manchester City last month.

He told whufc.com: “It was everything I dreamed it would be, to be fair. Making my debut back in Manchester, where I've grown up and doing it against City, one of the best teams in the country, unfortunately we couldn't get the result, but it's a day I'll never forget.

“The manager said he thought I had a good game and that he hopes it's the first game of many.

“We know we let ourselves down against City, in the first half we couldn't really lay a glove on them, but in the second half we came out fighting. The manager said to go out there and prove that we are a good team.

“We were missing a few key players but that wasn't enough of an excuse for our performance, we know we should have done better.

“I think I've settled in very well, everyone's welcomes me with open arms really, the players, the fans and all the staff so I'm loving every minute."
