Farnborough’s new striker Connor Calcutt says he aims to score thirty goals this season in the EVO-STIK League Southern campaign writes Tom Feaheny.

That is the same figure that he scored for his previous club Barton Rovers who he joined Spencer Day’s from earlier this month.

The former Stevenage and Wealdstone forward told the club website he believes his aim is achievable.

“I’m going to try and improve on last season. I think I scored 32 goals in all competitions in about 40 games, so this season I’m going to go for another 30 but I want to play a little bit more.

“I want to get more involved, I want more assists. I want to start trying to play better football so I think 30 is my minimum. Whatever I can add on that will just be a nice bonus.”

After signing a one year deal with the EVO-STIK League Southern Division One Central play-off champions, Calcutt is impressed with what he has seen so far.

“The ground looks unbelievable for what it is. I think the standard of football – the league they’re going into, this ground is easily one of the best, if not the best and apart from that I think it’s everything.

“Spencer Day has an ambition that matches mine. He wants to get Farnborough in the highest possible position he can. Obviously the ground needs to be filled and needs as many people in here as we can and the way they’re going to do that is by scoring goals and getting promoted. For me, that’s what I want to be a part of.”

Speaking about what he will bring to the side, the striker spoke about his attributes.

“I am physical, I’m good in the air and if there’s half a chance in the penalty box, nine times out of ten I’ll score it. The players are going to be playing around me with pace – I think I’m going to add the battering ram and the little quick players can do the running so to speak!
