Duncan Watmore says he’s excited about the future after signing a short-term contract with the club.

The 26-year-old has been a familiar face at Rockliffe over the past month after training with Neil Warnock’s first team squad and the attacker has been rewarded with a further opportunity to impress, having signed an initial contract until mid-January.

“I’m delighted,” said the former England U21 international. “I’ve really enjoyed training, it’s a great group of lads here, and I’m excited for the weeks ahead now.

“I’ve been really impressed by the set-up. It’s a brilliant club.”

The striker has in turn impressed manager Neil Warnock on the training pitches, and Watmore says he is looking forward to playing for the Boro boss.

“He’s been very honest and I’m really looking forward to working under him,” he said. 

“He’s a been a big name in the game for a long time now.

“There were some offers here and there and different options, but I was most excited for this one. It just felt right. There’s so many things going for this club and I’m excited to be a part of it.

“I feel in a really good place. I feel sharp. Game sharpness is different to training sharpness, but I feel like I can make an impact on games. I just want to get on the pitch and show what I can do.”
