Jose Baxter's Diary - Day 1

Youngster reflects on the first day of Everton's trip to Scotland.

Jose Baxter's Diary - Day 1

Welcome to my first diary entry.

It's fitting because this is an important pre-season for me.

Last year, it came as a real surprise to play such a big part, to score my first Everton goal at Nottingham Forest and to be taken on the tour of America.

> Blues Arrive In Scotland
> Mustafi Deal Complete

Of course I then made my full debut against Blackburn on the opening day of the Premier League season but I wanted to kick on more than I did.

I'm still only 17 though and hopefully this time round I'll have another good pre-season and take my chances to impress when they come.

I found out on Saturday that I would be coming to Scotland and was pleased by the news.

The hotel is lovely, the grounds are massive - it's just a shame I don't play golf! There's a massive course here - and don't we know it!

We were up at 7.30am this morning and running round the grounds by 8. 

Training was between 11am and 1pm at a local school and it was good to get the balls out and take our minds off all the running. We met Skhodran Mustafi for the first time too and it's always good to welcome a new face on board. 

So, as expected, it's been a hard day but I feel okay. Knowing what a big opportunity pre-season presents I've been trying to keep fit during the break by running and doing some weights. I'm hoping it's helping.

Now for a well-earned rest. I'm off to chill out and play some Pro Evo with Vaughany and James Wallace. Then bed. Knowing I earned it.
