Defender Steve Kinniburgh wants long-term Telford deal

Steve Kinniburgh

Former Oxford United full-back Steve Kinniburgh wants to earn a longer contract at AFC Telford United.

Kinniburgh made his debut for the Bucks in their 4-1 defeat against Fleetwood Town on Saturday, four months after his previous match for Cambridge United.

"I want to help Telford steer clear of relegation," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"I'll have to wait to the end of the season, but this is a really good football club with a bright future."

The former Rangers trainee signed on non-contract terms to provide cover for the injured Sean Newton and suspended Ryan Valentine.

"I thought I did ok against Fleetwood, it was my first game getting to know everybody, but I was quite pleased. I haven't played for a while so it's nice to be playing again," he added.

"I'm here for six weeks and want to show everyone what I can do."

Kinniburgh will be in Andy Sinton's squad to face Kettering Town on Tuesday night with fellow full-back Ryan Valentine available again after serving a three-match suspension.
