ADAM HAMMILL is pinning hopes on an exciting home Huddersfield Town debut tomorrow and promised: “I’m determined to prove what I can do.”
The 24-year-old Liverpudlian is keen to get a chance against Derby County at the John Smith’s Stadium a fortnight after signing on loan from Wolves and with fans desperate to see the flying frontman make an impact.
Hammill accepts it’s a key time in his career, having shone at Barnsley, been frozen out at Wolves and playing bit parts on loan for a string of clubs.
“I’ve come here to prove what I can do – the money side doesn’t come into it, I just want to play,” said the man who made a promising cameo debut in the 2-2 draw at Ipswich.
“I’m working with good, familiar people and that will bring the best out of me.
“I just want to settle – I’d love to extend the loan from January to the end of the season – I just want to be happy and to play, rather than tearing my hair out watching in the stand.
“There is nothing worse than watching. It affects you on and off the pitch and it’s tough. I didn’t play much last season and I didn’t play under the new manager (at Wolves), so I’m here looking for games.”
Hammill has played under Grayson at Blackpool and alongside Calum Woods, Keith Southern and James Vaughan in the past.
“I’m excited to be here and I want to prove a point,” he added.
“I think we’ve had a pretty solid start and I believe we can push on. With the quality I’ve seen on the training ground since I’ve been here I’ve no doubt we can do well – and we will do well.”
