AFC Telford United boss Gavin Cowan has ruled out a move for FA Trophy winner James Armson as they are not planning to pay fees for anyone.
Armson played a big role in Brackley Town’s run to Wembley, where they beat Bromley last month, and is a ‘good friend’ of Cowan’s.
They were team-mates at both Nuneaton Town and Solihull Moors and currently work together – Armson is the head of education in sport for Shropshire firm Crossbar Coaching, of which Cowan is managing director.
“James is a good friend and a former team-mate of mine, he was a young player coming through the ranks at the time,” said Cowan on the 28-year-old midfielder.
“Our work at Crossbar Coaching is separate to our football, though.
“He’s a very good player and someone, if it was possible, we would definitely look to bring into the club.
“He’s a top lad, but it would take an astronomical deal to take him away from Brackley.”
