Striker Will Hoskins has said he was over the proverbial moon to come on to make his debut as a second half substitute and then find the winner for Exeter against Yeovil on the opening day of the League Two 2015-16 campaign.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match he knows he couldn’t have hoped for more from the day.

‘I couldn’t have asked for anything better, and it’s been a long time in coming. It’s what I love doing, and the reason I do it is to have that feeling of getting those goals again. I didn’t think I’d be feeling that for some time while I was in the midst of my rehab. I thought I’d put too much on it loft-wise, or that the defender might have got round to clear it off the line, but fortunately I just watched it drop into the net. It was a relief, after everything that has gone on; to get the winner was just the icing on the cake.’

The striker did take a knock when he put the ball home, just as David Wheeler did with his second goal for us on the day, but he admits he hardly felt it at the time because he was just delighted to see the ball go in.

‘I was fine! The goal obviously gave me a bit of immunity to it, though it was nothing like the clattering David Wheeler took for his goal! I’m fine – it was a tough task for me, and I still have a lot of fitness to catch up on. The boys were magnificent, and looked fit and strong.’

He was also quick to praise the delivery from Matt Oakley in the build up.

‘It was a fantastic ball, and it made my mind up with regards to the finish I needed to make. I saw the keeper coming out, and I knew that I had to finish quickly in order to get it over him. I guess the natural instinct that has got me to where I am today just took over, and thankfully, I got it right.’
