Marcus Dinanga is out to repay AFC Telford United boss Gavin Cowan’s faith in him and remind fans of his goalscoring prowess, the Shropshire Star say.
Dinanga – the Bucks’ top scorer two seasons ago – insists next campaign is a ‘big’ one for him after not nailing down a regular starting spot upon his return to the club in January.
Having signed an 18-month deal then, he was the only player already contracted for next term.
Conversations with Cowan reaffirmed the Telford chief’s belief in the 21-year-old, who said: “It is a big season for me after not having the best season last year.
“The gaffer has got a lot of trust in me, so I’m not going to let him down.
“I am going to work hard on and off the pitch to get the goals needed to help the team push forward, hopefully to the play-offs or even automatic promotion.”
Dinanga took National League North by storm while on loan at Telford from Burton Albion in the 2016/17 term, grabbing 25 goals in all competitions.
