Kevin Wilkin thrilled to reward travelling AFC Telford United fans

AFC Telford United boss Kevin Wilkin was delighted to have rewarded travelling Bucks fans with their 2-1 victory at Banbury at the weekend.


It has been a tough season for the Telford supporters, with their side struggling at the bottom of the National League North table, and Wilkin is grateful for their loyal support.

He said: “I think it’s important when you get such a strong following there. Players, staff, and everybody need to understand the passion of it, that lies within that. It’s my job to harness that and make sure we’re turning it into that winning mentality on a more regular basis. We need to grow the club, we need to grow some of the young players that are here. In the desperate situation that you find yourself in, position-wise, and still to get that turn-out away from home?

“You couldn’t speak highly enough of those people and we’re fortunate to have that sort of following.”
