DAN JARVIS could not have asked for a better debut and quickly allayed fears over his second half substitution.

The 21-year-old midfielder has joined Wrexham on an 18-month contract after leaving Stoke City and he played a starring role as the Reds beat Woking 3-0 at The Racecourse.

Having showed why he is so highly-rated, causing the Cards all sorts of problems when Wrexham attacked, Jarvis scored the second goal and even going off with cramp in the 63rd minute failed to take the shine off his first Reds outing.

"I really enjoyed it," said Jarvis. "As debuts go, I couldn't have asked for anything more.

"I came off with cramp sadly but the fans were outstanding, they welcomed me with open arms, and it was a fantastic day for the club.

"Everyone played their part and it was a fantastic all-round performance."

Jarvis put Luke Young through on goal and after the latter's shot was saved, the debutant was on hand to make it 2-0 at the start of the second half.

"It just fell nicely for me and I stuck it in the back of the net. It was fate on my debut," said Jarvis.

"You think about a debut goal when you find out that you are starting and it was a dream came true."

Jarvis set-up more chances for team-mates, with JJ Hooper unable to take advantage, but he has backed the striker to get back among the goals.

"I came here to score goals and create assists for my team-mates so hopefully some of those assists can go in," he said.

"JJ will score goals, I am confident of that, and if I keep giving him the ball he will end up putting it in the back of the net."

Jarvis, a Stoke under 23 player who made seven Football League Trophy appearances for the first team but none this season, insists the cramp that forced him off will not be a major issue in the coming games.

"We will get working on that and I will get my fitness up," added Jarvis.

"I have not played that many games this season so hopefully I can get back to that."

Reds boss Dean Keates revealed that on-loan winger Omari Patrick is returning to Bradford City.

Patrick, an unused substitute against Woking, scored five goals in 10 appearances since switching to an attacking role following his November move from the Bantams but has elected to return to the League Two club.

"As it stands at the moment, Omari will be going back," said Keates.

"I am thankful for his contribution. There was a reason why he came out on loan, to get experience and gain minutes for himself.

"He has done really well and made a positive impact but he just feels he is ready now to go back and challenge at Bradford, and his next step would be to get a League Two team on loan."

Keates, who also handed a debut to substitute Davis Keillor-Dunn in the Woking success as well as Jarvis, is hoping to add to his squad before Saturday's trip to Harrogate.

But the Reds boss is also looking for fringe players to exit The Racecourse during the January transfer window.

"I am not as close as I want to be with outs," said Keates.

"There's a few that have turned the opportunity down but there are one or two more potential things in the pipeline for one or two to go out.

"But ultimately it is the player's decision. If they want to go out and play football that it is their decision.

"Coming in, I would like to think that we could add one or two before next week's game.

"There are a few positions I am looking at, made a couple of offers and just waiting to see whether the club's are happy; if not we will go on to our next targets."
