Finney: "When I Look Back At The Chances I Had, I Could Have Scored 20"

28 July 2021

Midfielder in the mood to surpass last season's goal return after signing new deal to take him through to 2024.

Attacking midfielder, Oli Finney, has committed his future to the club until the summer of 2024 and he is aiming to have an even more productive season this time around after injury halted his season.

Finney suffered a broken leg away at Shrewsbury in early February and didn’t feature again until the final game of the season against the same opposition.

The Staffordshire-born Finney had really established himself in David Artell’s starting XI by netting a career best of 8 goals and he was left devastated that his season was cut short.

Finney, 23, has become the latest youngster to pen a new deal and the Academy graduate cannot wait for the season to start.

He told the club’s official website: “I am really excited by the new deal and the gaffer and the club have once again shown their faith in me. It is a reward for my performances last season with the extra year on top and I am really pleased. It shows that I am doing something right and just gives you more confidence to go out and do even better next season.

“The gaffer has just told me to go out and improve on what I did last season. I scored 8 goals before I was injured and when I look back at the chances I had it could have been 20. At the time I was doing well and the team was doing so, so to get an injury like that and miss the rest of the season really was hard to take mentally.  

“I am fine now. I have worked hard in the off-season and will be ready for Cheltenham on the opening day of the season. I struggled a bit when I first came back and that is to be expected but I feel good now and just cannot wait for the season to get going.”
