Liam McDonald has today confirmed he has added a new forward to his playing squad with Hednesford Town being delighted to welcome Tristan Dunkley to Keys Park on a one year deal.
The 23-year-old turned down the offer of a new deal with Worcester City in order to make a switch to the Pitmen, having impressed in the National League North last season.
Following the signing of Dunkley, who has links with the club through his brother Cheyenne, manager Liam McDonald admitted that he was looking forward to seeing him in action. He said:
“Tristan is someone that I’m excited about, especially as he is stepping down a level. He has tremendous pace and is lightning quick, I see him as being a very good athlete.
“He has some links with the club and wants to follow in his brother’s footsteps and I feel that he has a great opportunity to do that here.
“Along with Gurjit and a couple of other strikers who are going to be announced it gives us really good options up front.
“I feel that this is a real coup for the club, signing a forward that is dropping down a division along with all the ability and potential that Tristan has. It is another good signing for us as I believe that he is the real deal.”
Dunkley, who can play all across the front line, admitted that he had taken advice from his brother when signing for the club.He said:
“I spoke to my brother quite a bit about this offer and he told me that Hednesford are a good club and also a family one with people being very welcoming.
“I feel really happy to be at the club and I’m very much ready to get going now. Fans can expect edge of your seat football from me and someone who is ready to work hard and play well for the team.
“When it comes to positions I can play all across the front line either on the left or right and just like to attack defences.”
Details of another new signing are due to follow shortly as the manager continues to build his squad.
