Marcus Dinanga is very thankful for his time at AFC Telford United, stating: “It was like a big family.”

Dinanga made a huge impact on a season-long loan from Burton Albion, ending up as the Bucks’ top scorer after netting 25 times across all competitions. The 20-year-old striker is awaiting news on whether or not his Brewers contract will be renewed, and said: “I’m still waiting on a decision from Burton.

“I’m really happy that I went on loan to Telford and it’s nice to think that it’s there (to potentially end up back at the club). I had a few options at the start of last season, places to go on loan, and I definitely chose the right one. We had a great team spirit, it was like a big family.”

Dinanga joined Rob Edwards’ side having chipped in with 34 goals at Evo-Stik Northern Premier outfit Matlock Town the campaign prior. He led the line for large spells of the term for Telford, also playing at right-wing, and had his efforts recognised by being named club player of the year – voted by the management team – at the club’s recent end-of-season awards.

“My target was 30 goals and although I came a little bit short of that, I’m happy with 25.”
