Ben Williamson is hoping to continue the form that has seen him score in his first two matches for Port Vale.

The 22-year-old striker found the net in friendly victories over Stafford Rangers and Newcastle Town.

"Two in two is not a bad ratio so far and hopefully I can keep it up," he told BBC Radio Stoke.

"You also want to score goals as a striker because you get a buzz out of it, even in training. The more goals you score, the more confident you get."

Williamson is one of six new signings at Vale Park this summer and said he is settling in well to life at the League Two club, despite manager Micky Adams' punishing pre-season schedule.

"It's been a hard few days, a lot of the lads are tired but at this stage it's all about getting your fitness," said Williamson.

"Micky Adams is very approachable, he knows what he wants from his players and the players are all willing to work hard for him."

Williamson has signed for Vale on a season-long loan from Hyde after spending time with the Glenn Hoddle Academy.

The former Bournemouth striker is part of the squad currently touring in the USA, where they will play four matches, before opening the League Two campaign at home to Crawley on 6 August.
