Newly-wed striker Michael Frew hopes his honeymoon period will continue when he pulls on a Spalding United shirt this season.

Frew wants to help fire the Tulips to promotion and give the club’s supporters their first taste of Step Three football.

Just back from a ten-day holiday in Dubai, Frew said: “With the service around me, Pat (Rayment) reckons he can get me 20 goals.

“I haven’t scored that many goals for a couple of seasons, but I think I’m more than capable of that, playing in a slightly different role to what I did at King’s Lynn.

“I’m more effective playing off a target man and I’m feeling as fit now as I have ever been.

“I am really looking forward to playing for Spalding. They are an ambitious club and Pat was interested in signing me for a few seasons.

“As a player, you want to be challenging for honours and winning things. With the players they have brought in, you don’t expect Spalding to be operating at this level for much longer.”

The former Lowestoft, King’s Lynn and Corby frontman is determined to hit the ground running for the Tulips following his summer switch from The Walks.

“Last season with King’s Lynn was the first one where I didn’t have anything to play for at the end of it,” said Frew.

“It wasn’t enjoyable after Christmas, but I’m sure it will be different this time around.

“The previous four seasons at Lowestoft I helped them reach the play-offs and the two before that I did the same with Nuneaton.

“Last season Spalding were progressing and finished seventh so this campaign a place in the play-offs is the minimum we should be aiming for.”

Frew revealed that he did have the opportunity to remain at Southern League outfit King’s Lynn.

“I spoke to Gary (Setchell) and he was keen for me to stay. I wanted to stay too, but we couldn’t meet anywhere in the middle in terms of a deal.

“There’s no animosity between us and he gave me a glowing reference to Pat.”
