Wollacott Wants To Repay Johnson Trust

Jojo Wollacott wants to repay the trust and belief shown by Lee Johnson after signing permanently for Hibernian FC.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper has now joined back up with Johnson, a manager who kept a close eye on his development when the pair were at Bristol City together.

When speaking to Hibs TV after putting pen-to-paper, he explained how much it meant to him that Johnson brought him to the Club.

“Obviously he was the First Team Manager at Bristol City, which is where I was a few years ago, so him signing me is a statement in itself, because it shows his trust and belief in me.

“He played a massive part in my development at Bristol, so I want to repay that.”

To try and do just that, Wollacott will be fighting with David Marshall for the number one jersey this season.

“I met him briefly today, but I’m sure I will get to know him over the next few days. He’s had a rich career and has bags of experience, so I’ll be looking to learn things off him, and you never know he might learn new ideas from me. It’s healthy competition and works both ways. I’m looking forward to it.”

It’s been a busy few days for the goalkeeper, who only just returned from international duty with Ghana.

The 26-year-old has earned 11 caps for the Black Stars so far and detailed how much of a privilege it is to be called up by them.

“It’s an honour. Going away with Ghana is really good, it’s a good life experience and football experience. I’ve just been away with them, got back on Wednesday, had a call from Hibs and it was an easy option to come here. It’s been a hectic time but I’m glad it’s all sorted now. “
