CAMERON Belford is "buzzing" to link up with Lee Fowler again and believes Radcliffe can push for the play-offs next season.

The much-travelled former Bury keeper played under Fowler at Nuneaton Borough and said it was the main reason why he moved to the Neuven Stadium.

Now he is looking forward to working with Fowler and assistant David Thompson and helping Boro push on.

“I am buzzing to be working with Fowls again, he’s definitely the type of person I want be around in football,” the Coventry-born keeper told the club website.

“Fowls is definitely one of the reasons why I came to the club, I haven’t worked with Thommo before in fairness. I watched Thommo play as a player at Coventry as a kid because I was at the academy when he was in the first team, a great player.

“It is good to be around people like that in football. I trust Fowls, I know what he is about and he knows what he gets from me.

“Hopefully we can kick on this season and have a right go.”

Boro finished 16th in the NPL Premier Division last season with the campaign cut short by Covid-19 but Belford is looking up rather than down next term.

He said:”With the players we are bringing in, the players we’re still looking to bring in, the set-up here, the environment we are trying to create, it is only going to kick us on to where we want to be.”

He added: “Nobody wants to be down the bottom end of the league.

“We want to be competing at the top so I would be very disappointed if we weren’t in and around the play-offs come the end of the season.”
