Hitch fires Fleetwood to success

3 November 2014

Striker Tom Hitchcock scored three minutes into his debut for Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon.

The 22-year-old’s excellent strike, a chest and volley into the top corner from the edge of the box, was his first goal of the season and it proved to be the difference for the Cod Army in their Sky Bet League 1 clash with Gillingham.

Hitchcock, who signed a short-term loan deal with the Lancashire outfit Friday, played the full 90 minutes for Graham Alexander’s side and came close to adding to his tally on a number of occasions.

Speaking to Cod Army Player, Hitchcock said: “It was good to play 90 minutes again and get a goal which will really help with my confidence. I want to play games and score goals and help Fleetwood get up the table.

“Three points is the main thing though as it keeps getting us up the table. It’s a big win as I thought Gillingham played well.”

Hitchcock, who will remain at Highbury until 28th December, has been granted permission to play for Fleetwood in The FA Cup this weekend – the Cod Army travel to Sky Bet League 2 side Cambridge United on Saturday.
