Ellis Deeney believes AFC Telford United are going through ‘a transition phase’ and is excited for the club’s future.
The 26-year-old midfielder recently arrived from National League North rivals Tamworth. And working under Rob Edwards, he feels the Bucks are much a different outfit to the one he has faced in previous seasons – for the Lambs and, before that, Worcester City.
“There’s great staff here and a lot of experience,” said Deeney. “From what I’ve been hearing, with the connections they have with Wolves, next season it’s going to be even bigger.
“It’s just a transition phase at the moment. We know naturally there’s going to be ups and downs throughout the season and the remainder of it – it’s almost guaranteed when you’re going through transition.
“You have to try and steady it, get some good performances and we’ll do alright.”
Telford are currently in the relegation zone but Deeney – the younger brother of Watford striker Troy – is confident they will pull away from danger. Having signed an 18-month deal, he is very much aiming to push on at the New Bucks Head.
“I’ve signed 18 months so for next season it’s going to be exciting, definitely,” added Deeney. “I’m not training full time.
“I work and have a business, that takes up most of my time. I train Tuesday and Thursday nights and the game Saturday.”
