Former fan favourite Dwayne Samuels and out-of-contract winger Elliot Newby have both reported for pre-season at AFC Telford United.

Samuels, who has had a year-long break from the game, and last season’s star man Newby were among those who trained at Telford College last night.

Bucks boss Gavin Cowan is willing to be patient with both players and on 27-year-old right-back Samuels, who expressed an interest in making a return to the club on Twitter last month, he said: “He’s here.

“I think he contacted the whole of Shropshire and then finally got round to me. When he finally got round to me, I was happy to have a discussion with him.

“He’s been a great lad. He’s been away for a year so there is nothing concrete, but I really like him.

“I think he could potentially be a good player if he gets back to where he was. He just wants to come in for a bit of fitness and because I know he’s a great lad around the group, I’m happy to offer that.

“If anything comes of it, great. There’s no loss, really.”
