AFC Telford United have reached an agreement
for the permanent transfer of forward Marcus Dinanga from Burton Albion.
The 21 year old forward has put pen to paper
on an 18 month deal that will keep him at the New Bucks Head until the summer
An Albion Academy graduate, Dinanga fired an impressive 34 goals
for Matlock in the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division in 2016/17 before finding the
net 25 times in the National League North for the Bucks last season.
Bucks boss Gavin Cowan had long kept tabs on Dinanga’s development
& availability and had been in regular communication with Burton during his
loan spell with Hartlepool which enabled him to move quickly once Marcus came
available to secure his signature at the New Bucks Head for the next 18 months.
“Marcus is someone who of course I know very well and someone who
I believe can contribute to what we are trying to do at this football club at
the moment. We have secured Marcus ahead of many others so it’s a testament to
our relationship an what he thinks about AFC Telford United that he is
returning. I hope our supporters both new and old will come out and get behind Marcus
and the other players from now until the end of the season”
Dinanga spoke of his delight at returning back
to Telford “ I am delighted to have
signed for AFC Telford United, it feels really good to be back and I can’t wait
to get back on the pitch and to start scoring goals again for this club”
See Marcus’s return to the New Bucks Head when
we host Spennymoor Town at the New Bucks Head tomorrow afternoon.
Everyone at AFC Telford United would like to
welcome Marcus back to the club.
