Shane Sutton says he has become a lot stronger, physically and mentally, following AFC Telford’s successful survival fight.

The skipper, who has stated his intention to stay with the Bucks, learned a lot in his first season in National league North. He previously spent nine years with Welsh Premier side Newtown.

On the difference between the Welsh top flight and the sixth tier of English football, Sutton said: “In the Welsh Premier, there’s not always many people watching and it’s a lot less physical.

“When I was at Newtown, I was only about 13 stone. But I’ve put more weight on since I’ve been here as the league is very physical,

“Since about Christmas, the draw with Brackley Town just before Christmas sticks in my head, I’ve been doing a lot more work in the gym and I feel it has paid off. I’ve learned a lot about the league – I’m just a bit gutted the season ended when it did, really, as we had some good momentum.”
