TOM Schofield will be back playing his home football at Wincham Park this coming season.

But the 30-year-old will be wearing green and white instead of red and white, after the former Witton Albion midfielder agreed terms to join tenants Northwich Victoria.

His arrival follows a spell at Congleton Town and he is set to add some key experience to Steve Wilkes' squad.

Here's what Schofield, who has also played for Knutsford, Trafford, Altrincham and Curzon Ashton, had to say when speaking with club volunteer media assistant, Jamie Dewsbury:

Q: What attracted you to the Green and Whites and make the move?

Schofield: "The management team straight away assured me how much they wanted me to come in, so it was a fairly easy decision.

"I am only up the road (Altrincham) so I know a lot about the club; and also from my time at Witton Albion previously – I know how big this club is and what it stands for.

"It's also a great ground to play football at and have a fan base that is levels above the league we are in."

Q: We have quite a young team here now at the Vics; especially some of the midfield players – what do you feel you can bring to this team with your obvious experience playing at a higher level, as we now have a good blend of youth and older players across the squad?

Schofield: "Most definitely it seems a good mix. We have some really fit young lads that look ready for the season already. So with the experienced lads here too we will have a lot of options.

"My experience of playing at higher levels, and being in non-league for so long hopefully will help. If I can help any of the younger lads improve then that would be brilliant.

"On the pitch personally I think I can bring a calmness and add some passing quality."

Q: What is the minimum aim do you feel ahead of what is a critical season for the Green and Whites’, with obviously Macclesfield confirmed as being in our division now?

Schofield: "Expectations for this club are high. If we go into every game and try to win it then we will be right up there because we have good quality.

"The league will be very hard this year, not just the threat from Macclesfield, there’s some other quality teams to watch out for.

"But our aim is to win the division, and so it should be. There will be added pressure with saying that, but everyone is under pressure ahead of a new season in some shape or form and it’s up to us to be able to rise to that pressure."
