Alun Armstrong Praises Donawa & Bascome

August 28, 2019

Darlington manager Alun Armstrong recently offered praise to Bermudian footballers Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa, calling them a “surprise package during the early stages of the season.”

A story in The Northern Echo said, “Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa have earned the praise of Darlington manager Alun Armstrong, who says both Bermudians have been a surprise package during the early stages of the season.

“Bascome has taken his opportunity to impress in the centre of midfield, while Donawa has largely been used as a substitute in the first five matches during which time he too has made an impact.

Armstrong said, “Osagi was already here from last season and people didn’t really know what he was like. I needed to have a look at him in training and he was really good, but it was a case of getting him to play the way we want in matches.

“He has taken that on board. It has taken him time to adapt to not playing at a slow pace, and he enjoys keeping the ball but all I ask him to do is to try and move it forward instead of backwards, and I mean passing it, not lumping it.

“He’s been a nice little link between the back-four and the midfield and surprised quite a few people. He’s only a young kid, that’s what people have got to remember. Same with Justin.”
