New loan signing from Brighton & Hove Albion discusses debut and preview’s clash with Hartlepool

Shamir Fenelon only met his Dagenham & Redbridge team mates for the first time on Friday before making his debut the following day at Mansfield Town. He couldn’t help them pick up a positive result, but he is sure he can aid their chances of staying up this season.

The 20-year-old signed for Wayne Burnett’s team on loan for an initial month from Championship outfit Brighton & Hove Albion last week and played the final 10 minutes at Field Mill during Saturday’s 2-1 loss.

He was disappointed to see his new team lose and felt the game was heading towards a draw.

Fenelon said: “We are definitely disappointed with the result. I think the least we deserved was a draw.

“They had a few chances but so did we and I think a draw would have been a fair result.

“You could tell, when I was on the bench, that it had draw written all over it. But it was a lapse in concentration and it is fine margins at the moment.

“I hadn’t trained before the match, I got to the hotel on Friday. I feel comfortable and I am settling in quite quick so a few more days and I will be settled in even more.”

The forward was pleased to make his first appearance and admits tomorrow’s clash with Hartlepool United is an important fixture.

He played on the wide right against Mansfield, but could be set to start alongside Jamie Cureton at Victoria Road.

“I was pleased to be involved, obviously the result wasn’t great, but pleased to get that first appearance and get on the pitch with the boys and hopefully I get a few more now,” Fenelon added.

“I have not really got a preferred position, but I am comfortable on the right, left or as the central forward.

“Hopefully I can get a bit more time on Tuesday and show what I can do. It will be a big game and if we can wipe out the little errors and lapses in concentration we can get a result.”
