Two goal Toni has eyes on first team

tonimartinezsigns_726Toni Martinez scored twice as the Development side lost 4-2 against an almost full-strength Coventry City side in the Checkatrade Trophy and remains very confident for the future.The young Spaniard scored on the half hour before he netted a fabulous consolation effort with a superb volley.

And afterwards he told the official site: “It was an important game for us, to play against good opposition, to show what we’ve got and use it as part of our development.

“If we keep working the way we are the results will come, for sure. Confidence is really important for scoring goals but it’s also important to have an objective in your mind.

The 19 year old added: “I set myself objectives in pre-season and I have that in my mind every time I head out onto the pitch.“For forwards, the goals are really important but they only come because of the hard work everyone else is doing in the team. I want to keep trying to score goals so I can catch the eye of the first team.”

  1. With his fantastic chip volley goal the game before, certainly got me looking out for him to be a star in the making. I don’t think it will be long before Fletch and him become the dynamic duo, terrorising defences like partners in the old days: Keegan and Toshack etc…. Well, something like that anyway….
    … Strikers, midfield, defenders, WHU have SERIOUS talent coming through all over the park… can’t wait! (Although, I’m enjoying the journey right now with the 1st team when it cranks up.)
    I wonder if this is down to Terry Westley??? If not him, then who?

  2. And you have seen Martinez this new Keegan play exactly how many time.Oh & btw I wouldn’t go to WHTID today FNC.The uses are really being such a bunch of bullies to the author of the article.I would suggest you go & tell them off.Pfffff.

  3. Well he has excelled himself this time.Two kids,one of whom we have barely seen the other a few matches & they are going to terrorise defences a la Keegan & Toschack..What a visionary lmao
