Alfie Potter’s passion for football has been re-ignited at AFC Wimbledon.
The winger fell out of love with the game at Oxford United as he was deemed surplus to requirements by Michael Appleton in January.
Dons boss Neal Ardley immediately snapped up the midfielder for the rest of the season and Potter has enjoyed his football at Kingsmeadow in the second half of the campaign.
He has got the buzz back again that carried him through to an FA Cup tie with Liverpool while playing for Havant & Waterlooville in 2008.
Potter said: “Until I came here I wasn’t enjoying my football.
“I am looking forward to the break, as these last four months have given me the hunger again and I am already looking forward to playing next season.”
An old-fashioned wide-man, Potter is enjoying working under Ardley at the League Two club and believes his boss gives him the chance to express himself on the football pitch.
He added: “I am the type of player to get the fans on their feet.
“Sometimes it comes off and other times it doesn’t, and when I came here the staff gave me the confidence and freedom to play the sport I love.
“I am thankful for that but I am also looking forward to a rest as it’s been a long season.”
Potter is out of contract at AFC Wimbledon this summer and hopes he has done enough enough to secure a new deal.
