Nantwich Town defender Courtney Wildin is pleased with how well he’s settled in at the club since moving to Cheshire two months ago.
The 21-year-old Antigua and Barbuda international arrived from National League North side Nuneaton Town and made his Dabbers debut as a substitute away at Altrincham in early October.
“Since signing with Nantwich, I’ve really enjoyed myself here,” Wildin told StaffsLive.
“The manager Dave Cooke encourages us to play good football and I can play with freedom and express myself on the pitch which is vital for any player to be confident and play to their best standard.
“The season so far has gone well – coming in part way through the season I’ve obviously missed a lot that’s gone on, but from what I see, the team has been in transition since the season started.
“We went on a fairly good FA Cup run which was great for the club as a whole. Getting to the First Round Proper was a good achievement and in open play, we actually matched Stevenage for most of the game.
“Although the result wasn’t what we hoped for, we took a lot of confidence from that game which is now paying off in our league matches.”
Nantwich, who have picked up nine from a possible 12 points in their last four Northern Premier League Premier Division matches, go up against Stourbridge at the Weaver Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Wildin is confident of picking up a positive result.
“Stourbridge will be tough but with us being at home and in good form that’s a positive. No game in this league is an easy one.
“But I’m sure if we keep playing with confidence like we’ve been doing in the last few games, then we can get a positive result.
“The fans have been great. They come out in good numbers and are always quick to praise any good play.
“I like the fact that when we aren’t playing well at times, the fans don’t moan and become negative. They try to encourage us and get us going again which is always great for the players.”
Kick off for Tuesday’s game is 7.45pm.
