Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is up and running at PNE. He got his first goal on Tuesday night and is now looking to kick on in 2015.
“I think as a player, all you need and all you want is honesty,” Sylvan told the matchday programme. “I have been lucky to have that under the managers that I have worked with and I work well in that environment.
“I am finding everything really good and I have settled in really well.
“I was in at the Club for four or five weeks training, building my fitness up, getting to know the lads, getting to know the coaching staff and what they expect, and when I signed the contract it was an easy decision and an easy transition so I am delighted.
“It has been a unique experience for both player and manager really because normally you sign a player and you only really watch them play for their previous club, so this experience is a bit different for both parties. But I am glad it has worked out and now I have signed the contract there is still a lot more work to do.
“It fills me with confidence that the coaching staff decided to give me a contract after having me training at the Club.
“I have said this before but they were very honest with me from the day that I came in and I knew what I had to do to try and earn a contract.
“I have now done that and I still know what I have got to do now to kick on and be a success at this Club, so that is what I am focused on doing.”
