Andre Brown is determined to take up the goalscoring mantle for AFC Telford United after his summer switch from Kidderminster Harriers, report The Shropshire Star.
The 22-year-old striker has arrived at the New Bucks Head having been a fringe player with Harriers. He still managed 10 goals last season, though, and was offered fresh terms there, but turned them down in an effort to become the Bucks’ main man.
“That was my main focus, to be honest. No striker wants to be sitting on the bench every week,” said Brown, who started Telford’s 3-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.
“Coming to a place like Telford, it’s a big club with a great fanbase. Hopefully the gaffer will give me the opportunity to go out there and score some goals.”
Brown spent two terms at Kidderminster after being released from Crewe Alexandra. He had a trial spell at Leicester City last year too. He has been up top with Daniel Udoh in the Bucks’ pre-season fixtures, and the pair are familiar to each other having played together at Crewe.
“It’s good. I know a few of the lads from playing with them at Kiddy a few years ago, so I know how to play with them already,” Brown added.
“The gaffer has brought in some lads as well and they’re all top quality so I’m just looking forward to the season.”
