AFC Telford United striker Matthew Barnes-Homer is happy to be playing regularly under a dual-registration with Halesowen Town, declaring: “I feel really sharp.”

The 31-year-old has found game time hard to come by with the Bucks recently and played for the Yeltz as they beat Whitby Town 3-1 on Saturday.

He is likely to spend the next few weeks with Halesowen – in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier, a tier below Telford – while training with Rob Edwards’ side, who have a wealth of attacking options such as Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Marcus Dinanga and Anthony Dwyer.

“I felt really good at the weekend,” said Barnes-Homer. “I feel really good and sharp at the minute and I really enjoyed it as well, which is important.

“We train a lot at Telford and I feel really good. At my age, being able to get 90 minutes under my belt is great – it keeps me sharp.

“It means when the gaffer does need me, I’m ready to come back and go straight into the team – and that is the main thing.”
