Freeman relishing jump to professional football

29 July 2016

Nick Freeman is enjoying the step up to the professional game as Wycombe finish their pre-season schedule with a trip to Maidenhead United tomorrow.

The midfielder, who signed a one-year deal last week, was delighted to have signed for the Chairboys having impressed manager Gareth Ainsworth while on trial this summer.

He said: "Going from part time football and thinking what am I going to do next, to getting a one year deal and training every day, having fun and improving - there is no better feeling.

"It is an unbelievable feeling. I've been on trial in the past where it hasn't worked out, and just wanted someone to take a chance on me. Gareth has seen enough in me to give me a go and it feels good. I'm on the platform now and I can keep going and I think I will improve and develop under Gareth and Dobbo.

"The fitness is not too bad, even though it is tough. It's more on the body as you fatigue more because I'm used to training two times a week and now going to four or five times a week and playing two games as well."

The 20-year-old joins the Chairboys after impressing during a spell with Histon in the National League North, and knows what to expect for the Blues final pre-season match at National League South side Maidenhead (3pm k.o.).

He said: "I know the standard. It will be a tough game but I am looking forward to getting some minutes under my belt.

"To make an appearance in the Football League has been a short term goal. Hopefully that will come, if it is not at Crawley [on August 6th] but in the games after that, that is what I am most excited for at the minute."
