CHRISTOS Papakonstantinou has bought into the “huge history” at Dorchester Town as the winger settles into life with the Magpies.

Papakonstantinou joined the Avenue Stadium side in the summer and scored twice on his debut at Hendon in Dorchester’s 3-1 victory.

The Greek winger has enjoyed a stellar footballing upbringing with giants Olympiakos and PAOK Salonika and has also had spells at Bournemouth and Aldershot.

And the skilful wide man has quickly been made to feel welcome at the Magpies.

He told Echosport: “Pre-season wasn’t bad but I missed the first two games due to my international clearance.

“My first game was good to get two goals, so that was a good start. After that we’ve had a few tough games.

“Individually, I want to be doing better, give the team and manager as much as I can and also give back to the fans and the club.

“I always try and push as much as I can. I’m never going to be in my comfort zone, I try to strive and achieve more.

“The club has a huge history. The team are good lads and the management as well. The fans are amazing and the club in general.

“It’s been a very warm welcome for me and that’s why I try every single game to give my all.”

Dorchester travel to Harrow Borough on their return to league action on Saturday (3pm).
