INTERVIEW: Delfouneso admits to whirlwind few days

Striker signs short-term deal after training with Reds

20 September 2022

Nathan Delfouseno admits it’s been a whirlwind few days after the experienced striker signed a short-term deal with Accrington Stanley.

The former Aston Villa frontman, who also had moves to Burnley, Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool in his career before being released from Bolton Wanderers last season, came to train with the Reds on Friday but was happy to secure a deal on Monday.

The 31-year-old said: "It’s happened very quickly. I was a free agent and, as that, you do a lot of work yourself but it gets to a point where you need to get into a club to train.

"I was lucky that I knew one of the players here who asked the question for me. I was able to come training on Friday and here we are. That’s how it happened!

"I was grateful for the opportunity to train and even more grateful for the opportunity to come and play football. I am excited for what’s to come and I can’t wait to get down to work and help the team.

"I haven’t played for a while but I am keen to get on the pitch, get up to speed quickly and hit the ground running.

"I have been in the game a long time but I have still got a lot to do in the game and pass on my experience to the younger players.

"I have a lot left in me after a difficult past 18 months. I am eager, motivated and itching to get going and produce what I know I can.

"I am good and happy and hopefully I can show my team-mates and the fans what I can do, I am here to help the team and push them up the league.

"I have scored in all the leagues and hopefully I can get off the mark as quickly as possible, get into full flow and have a successful time here.

"I am looking forward to the experience of playing in front of fans, just being out on the pitch."
