Stevenage manager Graham Westley believes new striker Calvin Zola will be have a immediate impact as the Hertfordshire club prepare for League Two.
Speaking to The Stevenage Advertiser, Westley said: “I think on his day Calvin will be a handful for anyone at any level. He’s a phenomenal footballer.
“He’s got that level of physicality, fitness. He’s a really good person to work with. He’s an intelligent person to work with.”
Zola joined Stevenage after being released by Aberdeen one year into a two-year deal with the Scottish club. The former Crewe and Burton forward scored three times in 20 appearances with the Scottish Premiership side.
“The one thing that Calvin can add to his game is his consistency. He is determined to add that to his game.
“He has got a great mentality and he is willing to work to get that consistency to add to the massive talent that he has got,” said Westley
“I’m enjoying working with him and I think he is really going to be a huge player in League Two this season. I really think he is going to spread fear.”
Zola joins as one of nine new signings at Broadhall Way following last season’s relegation from League One. It has been a complete overhaul of the squad with ten players also having left the club this pre-season.
