Christian Assombalonga has spoken of his delight at signing for Royston Town and vowed to help fire them towards promotion.
The 27-year-old came off the bench during Tuesday night’s 2-1 friendly defeat at home to Wingate & Finchley after moving to Garden Walk from Bostik League North Division champions AFC Hornchurch.
And the enthusiasm and excitement ahead of the new challenge was very evident.
Speaking to CrowSport he said: “The way they have handled the move has been really good.
“And from how they sold the club, I felt this was the perfect opportunity for me to come in and play football.

“We attack well and have players who are willing to play football and a manager who wants to implement a system that lets us do that.

“I’ve got [personal] targets in place. I don’t often because I don’t want to put myself under too much pressure but I want to be able to contribute goals and not just that but assists as well.
“I want to do well and work hard; that’s my goal. I want to make a difference.”
The striker, who counts Dagenham & Redbridge, St Albans City and Chelmsford City among his former clubs, knows exactly what the aim of the club is, and despite some strong opposition in this year’s EvoStik Southern Premier League Central Division, he is confident they can go close.
“It was a good feeling to win the league last season,” he said.
“That was my first title so if I can bring some of that experience, hopefully it can help.
“But there are some good individuals here and we work well as a team so I’m looking forward to seeing what the season brings. Promotion is the target though.
“It’s a different experience for me, a different league.
“There are some big teams in this league so it will be a test but it’s a test I’m willing to take and a test where I want to showcase my talent and do my best.”
