Macauley Bonne has his eyes firmly set on finishing as the National League’s top scorer after penning an improved two-year deal with Leyton Orient, say The East London & West Essex Guardian.
Bonne handed the O’s a huge boost last week when he quashed talk surrounding a potential exit from East London by signing a new contract with the club, keeping him with Orient until 2020.
The striker proved himself to be one of the most clinical strikers in the National League last season after scoring 25 goals in all competitions, and head coach Justin Edinburgh told the club’s website that Orient had rejected ‘serious offers’ for the 22-year-old’s services this summer.
Asked about whether he could finish as the league’s top scorer, Bonne said: “Yeah I’m confident I can and I’m going to go and do it. I set myself goals and I want to be better than last season as I said. I’m just going to go out and score goals and that’s my target.
“(As a team) no one knows what we can achieve, but it’s down to us to go and put the hard work in. I think everyone within the club knows what we want to achieve and that’s to be in the play offs or even get promoted automatically. But I’m aiming for a play-off spot come May.”
