A goal, an assist and the man of the match award was just a bonus for Welwyn Garden City’s Adam Hunt – the three points from their 2-1 win over Didcot Town were far more important.

The full-back put the Citizens ahead on six minutes with an effort from distance that looked more like a cross than a shot but there was no doubting the winner, with Hunt finding Jay Rolfe with an inch-perfect delivery.

The new signing from Biggleswade FC though was just pleased to play a part.

“Always a shot,” he laughed. “No, it was a cross but I’ll take it.

“My game’s not really about goals but I’ll take them anyway they come.

“It was just important to get three points with a tough start in our first six games.

“We looked energetic and we just went at them. It was the first game of the season so we just wanted to impress.

“The second-half was always going to be like that with the score so tight.

“But we dug in and got the three points.”

Hunt was high on WGC manager Adam Fisher’s wish-list through the summer and he showed why against Didcot.

The player himself though has been impressed with what he has found at Herns Lane.

“It’s my first time at this level and it was good,” he said.

“The boys have been great and Fish has helped me settle in well.

“I’ll take each game as it comes and with games like that hopefully I’ll settle in much quicker.”
