New boy Johnson crosses the bridge with ambition

As one of the new players at the club, Steve Johnson admits the setup is as professional as he thought it would be.
Joining from Scunthorpe, Johnson enjoyed a successful campaign across the river Humber, and knows his role this season will be an important one.
The fly-half impressed during the pre-season hit out against Hullensians last weekend showing his accuracy with the boot kicking at goal and hopes to secure a place in Gary Pearce’s side for the season opener at home to Rossendale on September 2.
“Pre-season has been tough as our conditioner Cal Donohue has pushed us to some pretty dark places,” Johnson said.
“But the general thoughts of the lads and myself are how fit we’re feeling.
“The set up at Hull is as professional as it can be.
“We’ve set our own standards high and accept nothing less, whether that be turning up on time, wearing the correct training kit or what you contribute to the session.
“The attitude of everyone involved is flawless as we all want one thing and that’s to play the best we can and get promotion at the end of the season.
“The Hullensians game was our first run out and was good to get that out the way.
“For myself playing at 10, it was difficult as the game was so fractured at times, but I think we handled it well and we’re ready to go get another win at Douglas.
“In terms of goal kicking it is something Gary has asked me to do.
“I’ve done lots of practise over pre-season in the build up for the season and hopefully I can contribute my fair share of points throughout the season.”
