Offrande Zanzala is hoping his time at Chester FC can help him put an injury-hit 12 months behind him.
The 20-year-old joined Chester on an initial one-month loan deal on Friday and came on as a second-half substitute in the dismal 2-0 FA Cup fourth qualifying round defeat at Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday.
The arrival of Congo-born Zanzala marked manager Marcus Bignot’s first signing as Chester boss, and given the manner of the Blues’ defeat on Saturday it’s likely that he will be handed a chance to shine sooner rather than later.
And having his progress with the Rams curtailed by an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury last season, Zanzala is keen to hit the ground running.
“I was excited that I was able to come here as it’s such a great club to get some experience and I was over the moon.
“I was disappointed with the score, but that is all part of the experience. As a group we have to pick ourselves up for the next game. Hopefully we can switch it and turn it around.”
