Forward Filip Valencic is delighted to have realised his dream of playing in England…
The Slovenian signed a one-year deal with the club on Wednesday and made his debut in the first half at Arnold Town later that evening.
He is now hoping he can continue to show what he’s all about after proving himself on trial.
He spoke to Magpie Player: “I’m very happy to be here. I always wanted to play in England and I accomplished that and I’m very excited.
“I’m not used to the changeable weather yet, but it’s interesting to be here. It’s a different culture, it will be a whole new, but good experience for me.
“On trial, you have to go on the pitch and show everything you have.
“If the trainer likes you, he will take you on. I’m grateful I’ve been given a chance.
“My Manager showed them my video and they were interested in me, I got a trial, I think I did good and I sign.
“I’ve always wanted to play in England. England is the most passionate footballing country in the world.
“It’s a big opportunity for me and I take it and I will try to do my best.”
