Following his return to the club Wills revealed there was only one place he wanted to be once he knew his time was up at Dorking Wanderers and was so close to joining permanently last season “It feels a relief that it’s in our hands now with a permanent deal”.
“Personally it felt that way to me anyway with a season long loan, I had thoughts of being here last year and of course did the pre-season photoshoot but circumstances changed at Dorking – I’m glad to be back here properly now”
“I’m keen to be back and I must say the support is unbelievable, it’s certainly grown over the years and I want to bring more success to the club”
Wills originally arrived at Woodside Road in 2016 following the club’s promotion to the Isthmian League Premier Division and was made club captain playing a total of 58 games in all competitions, scoring 5 goals during his first spell: “How it ended last time was never the way I wanted it to end”.
“I’m keen to be back and I must say the support is unbelievable, it’s certainly grown over the years and I want to bring more success to the club”. “I think we’ll do really well, going up for the first time you have that opportunity to catch teams by surprise”.
“We have that technical ability and all the makings to have a strong season, it’s important for me to play games and get back amongst it again to add value to the team, winning is infectious and we know how to win games”.
His transfer to Eastbourne Borough in the summer of 2017 marked a step up to the National League South and he’s been in the league ever since “Last season was the first time in my career spending long periods of time out of any side”.
“I was in the situation where Dorking were on a good run and I couldn’t quite grab my opportunity which was frustrating although I played in the play-off final victory and ended with a medal which was pleasing”.
“The National South is the league I have the most experience in – It’s a great league and this year it’s back up to 24 teams, it’ll be really competitive”
Asked how he felt about the current midfielders in the side Kane had this to say “My position has always been central midfield and historically I’ve been more known as a holding player”. “I like to think with my energy I can also play a box-to-box role, I’m flexible and we’re all slightly different to each other with our attributes”.
“Last season I saw Danny, Marvin and Jesse were putting in some excellent performances in a title winning side so I’m here to compliment what we already have and push for more success”
Wills will be hoping to be in pre-season action when we host Three Bridges at the Crucial Environmental Stadium on Tuesday 5th July, kick off 7:45pm.
