Nuneaton Town’s Greg Mills says he can not wait until the season begins as he feels something special could happen this campaign writes Tom Feaheny.
Mills linked up with the club from fellow Vanarama National League North side Tamworth at the start of 2017 and has 12 months more on his deal.
Speaking about the preparation for pre-season, Mills told the club website.
“I’ve been working hard on my fitness levels and feel fitter than I have ever done. I’m going into the new season in good shape and hopefully I can do well and help the team.
“Everyone is excited for what the new season holds in store; the Gaffer has kept the majority of the squad together and added some real quality to it.”
Mills believes that the club have been able to get players in that will help the club in their promotion bid.
“Chambo (Ashley Chambers) made a massive impact last season, so it’s great to have him back permanently, whilst I know how much quality Ryan Beswick has and it’s good to see him join us and add his experience to the team.
“On top of that there’s the likes of Courtney and Luther Wildin who are young players with so much potential.
Despite the standard in the Vanarama National League North being high and ever growing, Mills is looking forward to the challange and has set out goals for himself.
“The League is getting stronger every year and I’d say that there are 15 or 16 teams who could be considered realistic challengers. There are some big budgets and already there have been some quality signings.
“We’re included in that, of course, and it’s about concentrating on what we can do. We showed towards the end of last season that we can beat anyone in this League and if we can get off to a good start we’ll be able to build some momentum and get things moving in the right direction.
“I’ve got a personal goal and assist tally in my mind and hopefully I’ll be able to play my part in getting us to where we want to be.”
