NEW winger Keanu Marsh-Brown has promised to “take risks” and get Newport County AFC fans off their seats with excitement next season.

The 25-year-old, who started his career at Arsenal, has joined County on a two-year deal following the end of his contract at League Two rivals Forest Green Rovers.

Marsh-Brown helped both Forest Green and previous club Barnet to win promotion to the Football League and was reportedly a target for League One Shrewsbury last year.

But he fell out of favour at Rovers and ended last season on loan to Dover Athletic in the National League.

After a frustrating season, Marsh-Brown is ready for a fresh start at Rodney Parade and believes Exiles boss Michael Flynn will get the best out of him.

“I spoke to the manager quite a lot throughout the summer, he showed a lot of interest in me and I feel like it is the correct decision for me at this point in my career,” he told iFollow Exiles.

“I got promotion with Forest Green, I was there for three years and I had some good times there but now it’s time to move on and kick on.

“Mike Flynn showed me a lot of love and I think that’s what you need as a player.

“He gives me a lot of confidence and he knows what he wants from me next season.

“That was the main reason that I wanted to come here to be honest.

“Obviously, I just want to get my head down and play as many games as I can.

“I want to do well for this team and hopefully help them be pushing as high up the table as possible.”

And Marsh-Brown has vowed to provide some excitement from the flanks for the County fans to enjoy.

“I would like to think of myself as an exciting player,” he said. “I like to play for the fans, the crowd, and get everyone off their seats.

“I like to bring a lot of skill to the game and create things. I’m a player that likes to take risks – if you don’t take risks then you’ll never know what might happen.

“Hopefully, I can bring joy to a lot of the fans and they’ll be happy to watch me.

“I like to score goals, long-range goals as you can see from before in my career, and I like to win games,” he added.

“I’m a match-winner and I hope the fans will be happy with me signing here – I want to do well for this football club.”

Marsh-Brown is also relishing the chance to link up with fellow new signing Jamille Matt and last season’s top scorer Padraig Amond – a prospect guaranteed to excite any Exiles fan ahead of the new season.

“Obviously I’ve seen who the club has signed previously,” he said.

“Jamille Matt is a good striker and they’ve also got a good striker here from last year in Padraig Amond.

“I’m looking forward to playing with them and hopefully providing the assists.”
