Ex-Wisbech Town striker and Soham boss Furnell insists Cousins will shine at Step 4
FORMER Wisbech Town striker Andy Furnell has insisted Paul Cousins will be a huge success at Step 4 of the non-league pyramid.
Soham Town Rangers boss Furnell signed his former Fenmen team-mate - who will now play at his highest-ever level - after he was released by Step 5 outfit King’s Lynn Town following an internal dispute.
Furnell said: “It was a marvellous bit of business, he is going to make a big impact.
“He will bring a bit of steel to the back line and he takes no prisoners. I’m Paul’s friend and I spent a lot of time with him last season at Wisbech so I know he will get on well here.
“I think once he settles in and sees what we are about he’ll want to stay.”
