Boss Gavin Cowan believes he has the key to unlock AFC Telford United new boy Adam Dawson’s potential.

Wideman Dawson has joined the Bucks following Elliot Newby’s sale to National League North rivals Chorley.

The 25-year-old has been at Wigan Athletic, Accrington Stanley, Leicester City, Notts County and Bristol Rovers in what has proved a nomadic career so far.

Looking to get him settled down, Cowan said: “Adam’s ability is unquestionable. His frustration has come from not playing every single minute of every game.

“I’ve explained to him he won’t be playing 900 minutes across 10 games – a player with his skillset, and in his position, cannot play consistently for 90 minutes.

“He has to be utilised properly. He had a number of offers to go elsewhere, but I convinced him we’d get the best of him.

“He can set the place alight but as a winger you’re putting in a lot of work. Sometimes you’re more effective coming off the bench – Adam understands that now.”
