The versatile midfielder was one of just three players that extended their stay at New Bucks Head in the summer, along with Byron Moore and Brad Bood, who is now on loan at Stourbridge. And Piggott, who has captained the side in recent weeks, revealed the chance to take Telford back to where they belong made his decision an easy one in the summer.

“It’s a massive club, of course it is,” he said. “When I first had the opportunity to join the club I had no doubts, and again this summer it was a no-brainer to get signed back up.”

Piggot continued: “It would have been easy to walk away but I thought ‘no, I want to be a part of getting the club back to where it belongs’.

“There were only a couple of us that stayed but for me it was the manager and the attraction of getting the club back to where it should be, that made my decision for me.”
