German: "I need to work hard, it's time to kick on"

12 October 2016

Teenage striker Ricky German celebrated his newly-inked professional contract with a two goals yesterday as the reserves cantered to a 3-0 Rotherham United win.

Joe Rowley had given a young Spireites outfit the lead at the Proact with German showing pace, strength and poise in his two strikes to put the contest well beyond the Millers.
  
"I'm delighted really," said the 17-year-old, who signed a two and a half year deal at the club this week. "It's a dream come true for me to become and professional footballer and to sign at such a great club where they give youngsters a chance is great.

"Scoring the two goals today, that's just what I do as a striker. You want to score every game and work hard - then you'll get the goals.

"It's good to get some game time with the reserves, it's the first 90 minutes I've had in a long time and it's great for the fitness. It was a great win, we kept a clean sheet as well and the lads were great."


German has already made appearances from the substitute's bench for the first team, and the academy product revealed what manager Danny Wilson had said to him when he signed his Spireites deal.

"He said well done, you're doing well and we're pleased to offer you a contract," German explained. "Now I need to work hard, it's time to kick on.

"It was a huge boost for my confidence after receiving my pro contract two days before. I just want to show the gaffer and impress him and show him what I can do."
