GREG Ngoyi has vowed to shoot Wealdstone into the Ryman Premier League play-offs next season.
The 21-year-old has followed Marvin McCoy's lead by signing a contract with the club earlier this week and has now set his sights on becoming its first choice striker.
The former Leyton and Edgware hot-shot registered a remarkable 18 goals in 19 appearances last season, including 10 in the league, which netted him the club's Golden Boot award with free-scoring midfielder Ryan Ashe.
What made that all the more remarkable was an unsettled pairing with several strike partners as manager Gordon Bartlett sought a formula that would provide the attack with power, pace and panache.
And with the club unable to offer experienced midfielder-cum-striker Davis Haule a deal, all eyes will be on Ngoyi as he bids to get his first full season in the blue-and-white shirt under his belt.
"I'm delighted to get the contract," said Ngoyi, who does administrative work for designer fashion label Ralph Lauren.
"It took me a while to settle into the team but this shows all my hard work has paid off.
"I was a bit gutted the season finished when it did as I was buzzing."
Ngoyi believes he can double his tally from last season and help Wealdstone to promotion after their brief dalliance last time out.
He added: "I want to build on last year and hopefully double what I scored. I think that is achievable and I think we should be pushing for promotion next season.
"We're young, athletic and strong enough and a few of the boys felt the reason they missed out last year was because of a lack of goals at the start of the season. Hopefully I can put that right this time."
Ngoyi, who scored a clinical hat-trick against Harrow Borough in April, also hopes another good goals return will attract the attention of Football League clubs.
A few scouts ran the rule over him last season and he is confident he can play at a higher level.
"Every player at this level wants to be a professional and I will just keep my head down, work hard and see what happens," continued Ngoyi. "If it's meant to be, then it will happen."
