Tamworth forward joins
Cambridge United have today signed striker Adam Cunnington from Tamworth FC.
Joint second top-scorer in the Blue Square Bet Premier last season, Adam joins on a two-year deal.
Cunnington, 25, started his career at Barton Rovers, playing for numerous non-league sides before joining then Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Kettering Town in 2011.
After a promising start he then went on to join npower League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge, initially on loan before signing permanently in January 2012.
A loan spell at Alfreton Town followed before Cunnington signed for Tamworth FC in July 2012, going on to plunder 21 goals last season.
The striker hopes to carry his 2012/13 form into the new campaign at the R Costings Abbey Stadium: “On the back of good season I wanted to move to a bigger club and a team that can push for promotion and further my football career,” he said.
“Looking at the players that have signed recently and the existing players I think we can strive for a promotion or playoff push this year, and I hope to play as big a part of that as possible by getting the goals to get us there.”
Bedfordshire-born Cunnington also took time out to share some of his reasons for choosing to join Cambridge United ahead of other potential suitors.
“I played at the Abbey earlier in the season so knew a little bit about how it is on a match day, such as the number of fans and the atmosphere they create,” he recalls.
“I met Richard [Money, Head Coach] and Jez [George, Director of Football] and they made it clear what their ambitions are for this season. I really liked the club, got along with them well and that is definitely a big part in my decision to come here.”
