Nuneaton Town’s exciting wide-man Greg Mills is counting down the days until the 2017/18 season gets underway.
Mills linked up with the club from Tamworth at the turn of the year and has already benefitted from full-time training.
“I’ve been working hard on my fitness levels and feel fitter than I have ever done,” he admitted. “I’m going into the new season in good shape and hopefully I can do well and help the team.
“Everyone is excited for what the new season holds in store; the Gaffer has kept the majority of the squad together and added some real quality to it.
“Chambo made a massive impact last season, so it’s great to have him back permanently, whilst I know how much quality Ryan Beswick has and it’s good to see him join us and add his experience to the team.
“On top of that there’s the likes of Courtney and Luther Wildin who are young players with so much potential.
“The Gaffer has brought in personalities who he knows will settle in well here and be able to hit the ground running; the fact that most of us already know each other will certainly help in that respect.
“We can’t wait to get stuck into pre-season. The tournament is going to be a fantastic experience for us. Some of the best kids in Europe will be involved and for us it will be a test of how good we are and allow us to work on our shape.
“We’ve also got some other exciting games to look forward to which will help us get ready for what will be a tough National League North.
“The League is getting stronger every year and I’d say that there are 15 or 16 teams who could be considered realistic challengers. There are some big budgets and already there have been some quality signings.
“We’re included in that, of course, and it’s about concentrating on what we can do. We showed towards the end of last season that we can beat anyone in this League and if we can get off to a good start we’ll be able to build some momentum and get things moving in the right direction.
“I’ve got a personal goal and assist tally in my mind and hopefully I’ll be able to play my part in getting us to where we want to be.”
