AFC Telford United boss Gavin Cowan fully expects star winger Elliot Newby to stay at the club, stating: “He hasn’t told me any different.”
Newby grabbed a hat-trick of gongs at the Bucks’ end-of-season awards in April including supporters’ player of the year.
The 22-year-old winger scored seven goals in 38 games and fans have been hoping to see him commit for at least another season.
