Manager Wayne Burnett is obviously a happy man following the addition of Christian Doidge, and for the player himself he’s described the move as a dream come true for him.

Speaking firstly to the Official Site the gaffer was very pleased to have added him to our ranks.

‘He’s got a fantastic spring and is good in the air and I think he will add goals to us. We’ll use him a little differently to the other strikers and he’ll be a boost to the team. He’s got a wonderful leap, I know he played basketball for some time and that probably helps. He’ll give us a different dimension for sure.’

Having been handed the No 12 shirt for the season, Doidge himself said following the move and after he signed the two year deal with us.

‘I’m really happy and it’s a dream come true really as I’ve always wanted to play in the Football League. One of the reasons I signed was because of my time here pre season. The morale was really high and the boys made me feel really welcome so it was a no brainer really.’

The 21 year old was hugely impressive in front of goal during his trial spell with us, so hopefully he can carry that forward into the season for us now properly when his clearance comes through and he gets the opportunity to make his competitive debut for us.
