Lee Bell: More to come from Courtney Baker-Richardson

22 September 2022

There’s more to come from leading scorer Courtney Baker-Richardson.

That’s according to assistant manager Lee Bell, who believes there is still improvement in the six-goal hitman.

Baker-Richardson, 26, is averaging better than a goal every two starts since joining the club in the summer.  

But Bell said: “I still think there’s more in him.

“I think last year (for Newport) he was coming deeper more, getting flick-ons for others to run in behind, but we are encouraging him to focus on getting in goalscoring positions. 

“He doesn’t always need to get involved in the build-up, there are others around him who can make things happen.

“He has the instinct to score, he knows where to be. We want him in positions where he can score.”

He added: “You have to let Courtney be Courtney. He’s a great guy, he works hard and he’s getting the rewards.

“He leads by example and works ever so hard, he’s encouraging to the younger lads and demands high standards.

"He wants to learn and still has ambitions to play as high as possible.
