New-boy excited by Saddlers' challenge...

TROY Hewitt completed his move to Banks's Stadium today on a one-year deal and is looking forward to establishing himself in The Saddlers' forward line.

The 23 year-old was a regular on the scoresheet at non-League level before landing a dream move to Queens Park Rangers in February 2011 as then R's' boss, Neil Warnock spotted his undoubted potential.

Whilst he failed to break into the first-team at Loftus Road, he gained experience from loan spells with the likes of Dagenham & Redbridge, Bury and Colchester United, and is now determined to make his mark in League One with Dean Smith's side.

"I've been made to feel so welcome right from day one," admitted the pacy front-man. "I've never felt like a trialist during my time here; we have a good group of young and hungry players and I fitted in with them straight away.

"It was very beneficial for me to go away with the lads to Trinidad & Tobago because I was able to bond with them and also get to know what the Gaffer wants and expects.

"It was a great experience out there and now I want to do my best to help the club progress.

"The set-up is good here and it's a great chance for me to get regular games under my belt in what is a good level of football.

"It will be a tough League this year; there are some big clubs that have come down from The Championship, but from what I have seen we have a good squad who will enjoy the challenge that stands before us.

"I am the type of player who works hard to try and get into the positions to score. Hopefully I will add something to the team and get some goals along the way.

"I don't want to put pressure on myself by putting numbers on it, I just want to go out there and do my best and see where it takes us."

Hewitt will be part of the squad that travels to Alfreton Town this evening for our latest pre-season friendly fixture.
