New-boy Ellis Deeney is hoping his vast knowledge of National League North will help AFC Telford United pull away from trouble.

The Bucks are in the drop zone after their scheduled clash with Nuneaton Town on Saturday was postponed. And Deeney – the younger brother of Watford striker Troy – is aiming to call on his experiences at Worcester City and Tamworth, to guide some of Telford’s youngsters through a difficult spell.

“I think that was a massive part of why the gaffer wanted to bring me here,” he said. “A bit of experience in the midfield, he said he needed it.

“I’m an experienced midfielder but I am 26, I’m not too old. I have played quite a lot of games in this league with Worcester and Tamworth.

“I wouldn’t say I’m one of the best players or anything like that, but I can do my bit to help the team. It’s just to help the younger lads.

“They’ve got some good quality in the team, a lot of good attributes to be a footballer, and I think some of the lads can go on and do better. We’ve got a good team with good qualities.”
