Amoo off the mark for Preston North End

Posted On Tuesday, 24th July 2012

David Amoo

David Amoo predicts there is far more to come from him after a slightly delayed start to his Preston North End career.

The summer signing from Liverpool made his North End debut in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Morecambe.

And he followed that up by scoring the equaliser in PNE’s 1-1 draw at Bamber Bridge last night.

A minor groin strain had ruled him out of the opening two friendlies at Southport and Chorley.

He was going to be eased back into action after being named as a substitute against the Shrimps.

But Lee Trundle’s early exit from the forward line with a knee injury saw Amoo summoned into action by the 17th minute.

And the 21-year-old got an extended run-out, lasting until the closing stages.

Amoo told the Evening Post: “I got a bit of a niggle in training and sat out the first two games as a bit of precaution.

“At Morecambe I think the plan was to play in the second half.

“When Lee got injured, I was straight on.

“When the gaffer signalled to me, I thought he was going to say that I’d be coming on in the second half and to have a stretch ready for that.

“But I was straight on to the pitch and into the attack.

“It was great to play because I’d been disappointed not to have been able to make my debut in the first two games.

“Any player will tell you that they just want to be out there on the pitch, getting a feel for the game again after the summer.

“I admit it was disappointing that we lost the game and we didn’t play that well.

“But I’m sure the performances will get better as pre-season goes on.

“We’re still learning about each other’s games and how we like to play.

“There are so many new lads here that it will take a little bit of time to adapt.

“Off the pitch, we are gelling really well as mates, but on the pitch you need to play a few times before you click.

“There are some great characters here, some really big leaders, and I’m enjoying being among them.”

Amoo opted for Preston after being freed by Liverpool at the end of last season.

He knows League One well after loan spells at MK Dons and Bury – the pacey winger scored the Shakers’ winner against North End at Gigg Lane last November.

South Londoner Amoo said: “Coming to Preston was an attractive move.

“This is a big club with a rich history, and it is trying to build to get out of this division.

“I played for Bury twice against Preston last season.

“Their away support at Gigg Lane was superb, and playing at Deepdale a few months later was amazing.

“It’s a great ground and the atmosphere was good.

“While I really enjoyed my time at Liverpool, it was time to get out and knuckle down somewhere else.

“I want to try and cement a regular first-team place, and hopefully I can do it here.

“At Liverpool I got a brief taste of first-team football, but I wasn’t really close to making the big push.

“Sometimes in your career you have to branch out and try somewhere else.

“This is an exciting challenge,” he added.
