League games, cup games, you’re not short on playing football every week so that’s pretty good, and obviously the ambition of this Club they want to go up as soon as possible, they want to keep going through the ranks.
“That’s something I want to do and help, try and get the Club promoted. I think that’s the main aim for this year to try and get up there and I want to do everything I can to help that and push forward.”
