Everton newcomer Ben Godfrey is looking forward to playing in front of supporters for the first time this weekend.

The defender joined the Blues from Norwich City during the summer transfer window, signing a five-year contract with the club.

So far this season, all of Everton’s games have been played behind closed doors, but the club will this Saturday welcome 2,000 supporters back to Goodison Park.

And Godfrey is looking forward to hearing the noise they will make, as he said:

“It seems strange that this will be my first time playing in front of them. I can’t wait to hear them at Goodison.”

While the England Under-21 international is also looking forward to learning and developing under Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti.

“I’ve enjoyed it all. I’m a young player who is willing to learn and will do anything for the team and if that means playing out of position then so be it,” he told the Guardian.

“Every player goes through a spell where you’re on the bench or out of the squad and it makes you appreciate being on the pitch at all times. It is unbelievable to be able to learn from this manager. I am so appreciative of the opportunity.

“He has worked with some world-class players and, the experiences he’s had, I can soak everything up. And I have been doing. He gives you confidence. He’s quite laid-back and to be honest he simplifies things for you.

“He makes the game as easy as possible for you and I’m really enjoying learning from him. Believe me, everyone here is desperate to achieve something and we are working hard to do something we can all be proud of at this football club.”
