AFC Wimbledon striker would like to remain on loan with King's Lynn

King's Lynn Town loanee Aaron Cosgrave has admitted that he would like to remain at The Walks once his current deal expires next month.

The frontman is currently on loan from League Two AFC Wimbledon and has made a dream start to his career in Lynn colours with three goals in two games.

His current spell with the National League North high-flyers is due to come to an end after the trip to Spennymoor early in February.

The Brentwood-based striker, who car shares with Linnets defender Adam Crowther, has revealed how he would like to extend is stay in Norfolk, saying: "I'd love to stay at Lynn until the end of the season if it's possible.

"I'm really enjoying my football and the style of football the team plays helps my game. I'm grateful to Lynn for giving me the platform to show what I can do.

"I've always believed that I can get and play at the top level and that hasn't changed. The manager and staff at Lynn have put their faith in me and when you feel that trust it shows on the pitch.

"Training full-time with the team and starting the last two games has given me a lot of confidence. The boys have been brilliant with me since I've come in."

The 23-year-old scored within two minutes of his debut against Peterborough Sports at The Walks and added two more to his tally with a double in the 3-0 win at Leamington on Saturday.

There was confusion surrounding Lynn's first goal in Warwickshire but Cosgrave was quick to put the record straight.

"It was a great header by Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain across the box and I definitely got the final touch to it," he said.

He followed it up with a fantastic strike for his and Lynn's second goal 20 minutes from time.

"My second one was a sweet strike and I knew it was in the moment I hit it," admitted Cosgrave, who also notched four goals for Dover during a loan spell in the National League last season.

Cosgrave has also featured for Lewes, Welling, Southend and Chelmsford having started his career at Colchester and West Ham.

AFC Wimbledon signed him in the summer of 2021 after he impressed the management team in a game against Liverpool under-23s.

Cosgrave has his sights set on more goals and another three points at home to Bradford PA – a game which could see Lynn go back to the top of the league standings.

"I like to get on the ball and I like to score goals. Obviously it would be great to get more on Tuesday but, ultimately, the most important thing is that we can pick up another three points," he said.
