Smash-hit Aaron Taylor is relishing the fresh start he has been given at Bamber Bridge.

Taylor, who scored three times in three games ahead of last night’s league clash at Ossett Albion, is back on track following an unhappy 2010.

The former Morecambe kid scored on his full league debut for the Shrimps, but it all went sour for him at Christie Park, when injury halted his progress before he was released at the end of last term.

Taylor said: “I went to Kendal, but it didn’t work out there because I had problems with the manager, then Witton Albion decided to get rid of me before I could show them what I could do.

“I went back playing amateur football with my mates, and then, out of the blue, I got a call from Neil Reynolds, Brig’s player coach.

“I met Tony Greenwood and told him I wasn’t bothered about money as long as he could give me a run of games.

“I didn’t get a fair chance at Kendal or Witton, and I knew if I got a chance, I’d score goals for Bamber Bridge.”

Taylor’s aim is a return to the professional ranks, and to follow Jordan Connerton’s lead, the Lancaster City striker who secured a move to Crewe Alexandra last season.

“It happened to one of my mates (Connerton), who scored a few goals in this league and was signed by Crewe.

“That’s my ambition, to get back playing in the league.

“I was down when Morecambe let me go, but I’m really enjoying it at Bamber Bridge.

“When I signed, my match fitness was down, but I’m getting sharper every game, and scoring goals breeds confidence for any striker.”
