“Once I was given the opportunity to come down and meet the manager, it is a Club that straight away I wanted to be a part of.

“What the lads have achieved so far with back-to-back promotions is unbelievable and you can see why they have done that when you speak to the manager because he has got a real appetite for football and that matches my own.

“Hopefully I can bring experience and when the fans see me, they’ll see the energy and appetite that I do play the game with, I’ve got that hunger and that drive.”

“When anybody becomes available who we think can help us along and keep the consistency and tempo, then we will do that.”
