Carroll thanks West Hams fans after loan spell

21 May 2013 15:08

Andy Carroll has praised West Ham fans for the warm welcome he has received since arriving on loan from Liverpool.

The former Newcastle United striker joined Sam Allardyce's side at the start of the season and has scored seven goals in 24 Premier League.

He has been well received by the fans at Upton Park, something which Carroll revealed had helped him to enjoy his time at the club.

"I have enjoyed every minute of being here," he told the club's official website.

"I have just tried to play my best in every match, score goals and keep myself fit once I got back from the injuries I had and then push on from there.

"The West Ham fans have been brilliant - they were chanting my name all through the match (against Reading), they never stopped and I thank them for the way they have supported me here from the moment I arrived."

West Ham finished the season in 10th following their 4-2 win over Reading on Sunday and Carroll said it is an important achievement for the club following their promotion from the Championship last term.

"As a team, we have made a good transition back up to the Premier League," he continued.

"It is a tough thing, but the aim from the start was to try and get in that top 10 and that is what we have done. That was certainly relayed to me when I arrived here, the determination to do that."
