The deadline day signing from Sheffield United capped a whirlwind 24 hours with a goal in the Tigers’ 3-1 home win against Bolton Wanderers and the Irish midfielder hopes that is just the start of the good times in a black and amber shirt.
“I loved it,” said Quinn.
“Everything happened so quickly on Friday, but the most important thing was that everything went through in time for me to play on Saturday.
“I enjoyed the game and we look like a good footballing side. I’m looking forward to working with Hull City.
“In terms of a debut it couldn’t have been much better. I haven’t scored too many in the past but I want to turn that around here. With the amount of good players we’ve got here, it should be really good to play with them.
“It was a tough game. We knew Bolton would come here and be physical and try to use big Kevin Davies up front. I thought we counteracted that well and in the second half we showed how good we are on the ball.
“We’ve got big ‘Oli’ (Seyi Olofinjana) in there breaking things up and playing the ball off for Robert Koren or me to go on and do our stuff. That’s really enjoyable.”
Although delighted to get his name on the scoresheet, Quinn admitted that much of the credit for his goal had to go to Jay Simpson following some superb approach play.
“Jay was unbelievable down the right and twisted a couple of their defenders up,” added Quinn.
“He pulled the ball back across the box and I stole in front of my marker. It was a tap-in for me really, Jay did all the work and I have to thank him for that.”
