Woking’s Louie Theophanous thinks he can adapt to National League level quickly, believing “the goals will come” following an impressive debut at Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old came on in the second half and assisted Charlie Carter with a superb cross on the left after beating his marker. Theophanous has scored goals wherever he’s been at in non-league, but this is now the highest level he’s played at – and with an increase in fitness, he could turn out to be a good signing for the Cards.

And he’s “100 per cent” up for the challenge, following his time with Bostik League Premier leaders Billericay Town.

“It was good to get out there with the lads and get some minutes into my legs, I hadn’t played for a while,” said Theophanous. “I was happy to get the assist but obviously sad with the result.”

“There weren’t a lot of chances created throughout, they had a penalty and a deflection. I like getting in behind defenders on the counter attack, and I think the goal came from one of those where I went out wide and got the cross in.

“The team try to play football and that’s the way I like. This is a new challenge for me and I am 100 per cent up for it, it’s good to start off with an assist and the goals will come naturally.

“I am trying to get my fitness levels up, the 30 minutes was really, really good for me.”
