Jarvis: Debut Was Dream Come True

25 August 2021

Will Jarvis says it was a dream come true to make his senior debut for Hull City.

The winger came off the bench against Wigan Athletic in the Carabao Cup to make his maiden first-team appearance, before making his EFL bow the following week against Derby County.

“It was a great experience as it seemed so far away a few years ago,” said Jarvis.

“The feeling was great, because I’ve been playing for Hull City since the Under-12s, so to make my debut was a dream come true; I’ve kept my debut shirt neat and tidy at home.

“I always feel confident when I’m on the pitch and I think I showed that in my performances. For Wigan, it was a disappointing result. I was glad to score my spot-kick, but penalties are always a lottery and sadly we went out.

“I was over the moon to make my Championship debut against Derby a week after my senior debut. I’ve been watching the Championship for years on TV and to come on was a surreal moment for me, despite the result.”

Jarvis has been training full-time at Cottingham and has also been a regular for the Under-23s, scoring the third goal in a 3-1 victory over Bristol City on Monday, and the forward is excited to see where the season will take him.

“Everyone has been very welcoming and they’ve been giving me advice on how to improve my game,” added Jarvis.

“I feel my overall game has improved a lot and long may that continue.

“My target is to get as many minutes as I can at any level. After having that first-team experience, my aim is to keep pushing the first-team lads for their positions and hopefully there will be more opportunities for me to impress throughout the season.”
