Omochere: Now I have settled in, the focus is on Port Vale

Forward Promise Omochere sat down with the local media ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League One opener at Port Vale.

Omochere was Town’s seventh signing of the summer. He made his first appearance is the Club’s 2-1 win over Dundee United last weekend and managed to get himself on the scoresheet in the final pre-season fixture against FC Halifax Town. 

Here’s what the 21-year-old had to say:

On why he chose Fleetwood Town… 

“When my agent told me about the interest from Fleetwood Town, I couldn’t help but look up the Club and the first thing I saw was the training ground and the facilities that they had.  

It’s a huge attraction and with the Club climbing up the English league ladder, now in League One – they are doing well and for me it’s a step-up as it was part-time in Ireland at Bohemians, but here is obviously full-time and that really excites me. 

“For me, I had never left home nor been away from my family so this move was a big decision for me but it’s a great challenge and opportunity. This is something I was looking at so now my focus is on the EFL and my time here. 

“I managed to speak to a few of the lads before I made my decision, and they were so friendly with me and open about the Club and told me I would fit in right here and do well here – I just can’t wait to get started!” 

On working with the manager… 

“The manager [Scott Brown] has been very good with me. It’s clear to see the way he wants to play and he’s very clear about what comes across and as players, we each know our jobs and that’s key.  

“Around the training ground, he always has a smile on his face and is great within the dressing room with the lads. As I said, he’s been great with me, so I am very grateful he brought me in here.” 

On scoring and his first against FC Halifax Town… 

“There are more goals to come from me! I probably could have had a few more that game but ultimately my main aim is to score goals and take my performance and goal from the friendly, into the league campaign as well as the cup competitions.” 

On what he likes to get up to during his free time… 

“I have been at college studying Business and I was in my second year before this move happened. Football is my main passion, but it is tough to balance the two together. It’s a lot of work but I was focusing more on football. 

“I haven’t finished college just yet. I have deferred for a year but will pick it back up soon as I will have some time in the evenings to complete work.”
