Winger can’t wait to get going against Derby

Town’s latest recruit Adam Hammill is eager to get going in the colours of blue and white and is ready to prove a point, starting against Derby County on Saturday.

Hammill made a cameo appearance against Ipswich last weekend and after a fortnight getting to know his new teammates he now feels settled and ready for a busy a month of football.

“I have enjoyed everything so far - I have settled in great,” Adam told “The lads have been very good to me as has the Gaffer and I have couldn’t have asked for any more – it feels like I have been here a lot longer than two weeks.”

The winger hasn’t played competitively for Wolves since early January and admitted that he had become tired of being sat in the stands at Molinuex on a match day.

“It wasn’t a difficult decision to move away from Wolves; I just wanted to play football. To come here I had to take a bit of a wage deduction and if I had wanted I could have just sat in the stands at Wolves, but that wasn’t for me. I am here till January and I want to prove to people what I can do. I am still relatively young, but I haven’t played for a little while and I just want to show what I can do.”

The Liverpudlian played under Simon Grayson during his tenure at Blackpool and also knew a number of Town players prior to the move. 

“He (Simon) was a massive factor in my decision to join the football club,” said the 24 year-old. “When I heard of Huddersfield’s interest it was the only club that I wanted to sign for. I have known Keith Southern, James Vaughan and Calum Woods for a long time so it wasn’t a case of moving to a new club and not knowing anyone. The move almost didn’t happen, but I was made up when it did and just want to get going now.”

Hammill played 13 minutes at Portman Road before the international break and helped set up a penalty late on for the Terriers – and after impressing for the Development Squad last week he is now ready to make his mark on the first team.

“I was delighted to be back out on the pitch again. It was one of the stranger match days that I have had as I had to leave Liverpool at six in the morning to get to Ipswich for the game. I wasn’t expecting to be involved, but I was, and I did relatively ok. My fitness has been boosted last week with the two games and I also scored two goals which was good. As I get going I will be looking to chip in with as many goals as possible.”

Speaking about his style of play he said: “I like to get on the ball and run at opponents – I suppose people may call me a bit of a tricky customer. During my time at Wolves I have tried to work on the defensive side of my game and worked on tracking back and helping out the defence. Although I didn’t get as much game as I would have liked at Wolves, it has allowed me to work on things and provided me with invaluable experience.”
