Waring's Goal 'A Dream Come True'

13 January 2015

George Waring realised his childhood dream at the weekend - scoring his first professional goal.

The striker, who joined the Reds on loan from Stoke City last week, notched the first goal of the game in a 2-0 win over Yeovil Town.

Speaking to Barnsley Player after bagging his goal, Waring said, "It's a great start - what I was dreaming of," said the forward.

"It's any striker's dream on their professional debut to get a goal. I think I can perform a bit better though in my general game. But to get a goal is a great start.

"It's a great confidence boost for me as the manager's put me in from the start. He's shown he believed in me and I've took that confidence into the game and tried to do my best.

"The lads were different class. The battling they put in was top notch and the clean sheet was always going to happen as we never looked under threat."

The 20-year put the Reds ahead in the 50th minute before playing a hand in the second goal - a penalty won and converted by Conor Hourihane from Waring's assist.

"I heard Conor shout," continued Waring. "I'd seen him over my shoulder because I was thinking about maybe going on and trying for a second!"
