“It was very unfortunate that the season was cut short because since joining in January I was having a great time. I got on well with the lads in the dressing and felt a real connection with the fans and the Football Club in general.

“This is a Club really on the up under the gaffer and with the squad that we’ve got. it’s an exciting time to be part of things and we’ll be looking as high as we can next season.”
