Club legend Steve Palmer has praised new AFC Telford United boss Gavin Cowan’s early recruitment, stating: “They’ve pulled off a couple of coups.”

The Bucks have 11 players signed up for next season including 30-year-olds Darryl Knights and Theo Streete, and 31-year-old Steph Morley.

Palmer played more than 260 games for Telford across two spells, winning promotion in his second after impressing for them in the Conference in his first, and feels those experienced additions can provide some stability.

“Gav and (assistant) Phil (Trainer) are probably working with a smaller budget than what was available last year, but they’ve brought in some experienced lads,” said the Bucks Hall of Fame member.

“They’ve got a few in, Daniel Udoh who really impressed on loan at Halesowen Town, being one of them. They’ve pulled off a couple of coups already.

“You could argue some of the lads might be past their best, but you need that experience – these players know the league and what it’s all about.”
