New signing Adebayo Akinfenwa has said he feels he can strike up a formidable partnership with fellow signing Matt Tubbs next season.
Speaking to the Official Site after he turned down the contract offer he had at League 1 Gillingham to join up with us, 'Bayo' was extremely confident about our chances for next season and even said he doesn't mind if his own goal scoring tally takes a hit, if it means Tubbs is firing them away for both of them.
'I would like to think that other strike partners look forward to play with me. My game is not just about scoring goals, it's about bringing other players into play. Matt can be top scorer, I'm okay with that!'
Having faced off against Tubbs a number of times in previous season, he knows exactly what he will be bringing to Wimbledon next season, and he says he's got a lot of respect for him, and he believes he's a very good player so he's looking forward to them both striking up a good partnership with him that will hopefully be a success for all concerned.
Given his experience in the game, Bayo jokes that many say he has 'big shoulders' and not only does he like the pressure of that, he wants to be the focal point in the team and help carry them, whilst also knowing he has a role to play with the youngsters in terms of helping them both on the pitch, but also off the pitch for their development, so next season for him brings challenges on a number of levels that he's looking forward to.
Having spoken to our heroes Danny Kedwell and Steven Gregory, Bayo says that they didn't have a bad word to say about the club and more than convinced him that he was the right decision, but also equally manager Neal Ardley played a big part in his decision.
'The manager was massive for me in coming here with his vision and the way he wants the team to play. We're not there just to make up the numbers next season. It's going to be a tough league because the quality of players is getting better and better, but from day one we'll be going into it looking to do something and hopefully we can do great things.'
Certainly sounds like we want to be ambitious next season now, and the signings so far of Bayo and Tubbs with their ability in front of goal does bare that out.
