Kaine Felix is desperate to make his competitive debut for Boston United - and get his name on the scoresheet.
The pacy winger missed the first two matches of the Pilgrims’ Vanarama North campaign serving a suspension he picked up while playing for St Neots Town last season.
But now manager Dennis Greene is free to unleash his enigmatic talent at Colwyn Bay on Saturday (KO 3pm).
“It’s a step up for myself. This is a big step up,” admitted Felix, who realises that the start of his two-year contract will be spent getting to grips with his new challenge.
“Obviously, some of the boys here are more experienced, so I’ll be watching them and analysing them and learning.
“If I can learn from them then when I get my chances then hopefully I can come off the bench and do well.”
The 19-year-old has certainly impressed when given his chances in pre-season, looking the likeliest successor to the quick-footed and direct approach of Ricky Miller, who joined Luton Town this summer.
Although Dennis Greene’s latest rough diamond may still have some way to go before he can begin thinking about replicating the 28 goals scored by Miller last season, Felix is quick to admit he enjoys finding the net - not matter what level he’s playing at.
“My shooting boots weren’t on last season, but I have scored 65 goals in a season before.
“That was Sunday League and three years ago. I know this is very different but I love the feeling of scoring a goal and hopefully I can start getting some goals for Boston.
“We’ve got some very big fixtures against some very big teams, but if we can stick together we can come out on top.
“It’ll be interesting.”
