THEY may be preparing for life at a higher level but Radcliffe’s star striker Tunde Owolabi says there is no way they are going just to make up the numbers.

Boro went up via the Evo-Stik play-offs and will join Atherton Collieries in the Northern Premier League next term.

But last season’s leading scorer and player of the year is aiming high, and

insists no one at the Neuven Stadium will be resting on their laurels.

“For us it was job done, getting promotion,” said Owolabi, who found the net 26 times and added 13 assists for his team-mates.

“But as a team there were some games where we just didn’t turn up.

“You have to congratulate [champions] Atherton Collieries, they were the most consistent team and that’s what you need to win leagues so they deserved it, that’s where we missed out last season.

“I don’t think they’re a better team than us but they were more consistent.”

After a stop-start campaign in 2017/18, one that brought him just a handful of goals, the move to Radcliffe paid dividends for both parties, and now the son of former Antwerp professional Ganiyu Owolabi is setting his sights on bringing more success to the club.

Not for him a season of consolidation. Owolabi has far loftier ambitions for Boro next time around.

“We don’t want to be settling for a mid-table place next season,” he added. “We want to make our mark in the Premier Division. We’re a team that wants to prove a point.

“Obviously the manager might want to make changes this summer, he might feel he needs to bring in some more experience, but this club is going places and I want to be in that environment.

“Winning promotion was an amazing feeling, and we want to feel that again.

“Obviously it might not be this season but we all feel it will come, I’m happy at Radcliffe, I love the fans here and I’ve finally found a manager and coaches that believe in me.”
