NEW Hartlepool United signing Scott Fenwick has only one thing on his mind – goals.

Pools boss Paul Murray has made the Dunston UTS striker his third signing since taking over at Victoria Park.

And while the 24-year-old Ebac Northern League hotshot will not be available for today’s FA Cup first-round clash with East Thurrock United – and any other subsequent ties – he is almost certain to feature in the squad for next Saturday’s League Two trip to Southend.

Fenwick, who has been give the number 17 shirt, is a natural goal scorer – something Pools have lacked since the transfer deadline day departure of player of the year Luke James.

Pools have netted just 12 goals in 16 games – only Blackpool have scored fewer times in the Sky Bet Football League.

Fenwick has already shown Murray what he can do on trial by scoring both Pools goals for the reserves in the midweek 2-1 victory over the forward’s hometown team, Gateshead.

“I am a goal scorer,” said Fenwick who has left behind a good job to sign for Pools.

“I think I am someone with the knack of being in the right place at the right time.

“But I am a team player as well – I am a lad who will put a shift in for the side.”

Fenwick says his first professional deal has “not sunk in yet” but is excited by the challenge.

He has impressed in training, as well as the reserve derby, and has “loved” his week at the club.

“I’ve really enjoyed it,” he said. “The environment and training has been brilliant and everyone has made me feel dead welcome.

“I think I have fitted in straight away and I’ve had a mint week.

“Yes, the goals have helped but I’ve loved it here already.”
