Andy Wycherley proud to have signed for AFC Telford
Goalkeeper Andy Wycherley has revealed his pride in signing for AFC Telford United – the club he went to watch while growing up.
The 20-year-old, from The Rock, has joined the Bucks after an impressive trial spell.
He turned down fresh terms at The New Saints earlier this summer and is one of three shot-stoppers Gavin Cowan has at his disposal, the others being Leicester City loanee Max Bramley and Sheridan Martinez.
“Having watching Telford growing up, it’s massive and a proud moment for me and family, and also the friends that we used to go and watch Telford with – sitting in the same place for years,” said Wycherley.
“My aim, short term, is to work my way into the squad. It will be difficult because Max and Shez are both top keepers, but it’s a challenge that I look forward to taking on.
“Long term, I would like to become Telford’s No.1 and work to play at the highest level I can.”
Wycherley was between the sticks as the Bucks won the Shropshire FA Huddersfield Cup last month, beating Shawbury United 3-2.
He is very grateful Cowan has snapped him up and added: “A massive thank you goes to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity.
“He’s done a lot over the summer to keep me at Telford and I cant thank him enough for it.”
Wycherley used to play with Telford defender Zak Lilly for England Schoolboys.
He also featured in friendlies for Northern Premier side Nantwich Town over pre-season.
