Former Yeovil Town loanee Kabongo Tshimanga has found himself a new club. The 21 year old was released by Milton Keynes Dons at the end of last season, following his return from his loan spell at Huish Park, but has now signed for National League North side Boston United on a one year contract.
Tshimanga has had a reputation as being a player who can play either on the wing or up front, but it would appears that Boston United manager Adam Murray sees him just as a centre-forward who can get his side goals, and believes the player just needs a settled environment to flourish:
"The centre forward position is one we have been patient on. We wanted someone who was hungry to score goals and had the movement and intelligence to get themselves into constant goalscoring situations. In Kabby we believe we have found a young man with those attributes. He is quick, powerful and intelligent around the box. He scored 42 goals in 25 games for MK Dons at under-18s level and came to National League North and scored five in 10 for Corby Town a couple of seasons ago, so we believe he has goals in him. The next stage for Kabby is a settled environment where his focus is on one club and scoring goals in that environment. We are very pleased he chose us as the club that he wants to be part of. He's played a number of times for MK Dons' first team and will bring a real quality to the team."
The Zaire-born player's time at Huish Park will go down as one of the more unusual loan spells in the club's history. Brought in during January 2017 on a half-season loan deal, and with 13 Milton Keynes Dons first team appearances to his name, including 12 from the first half of the 2016-17 season, he had been expected to play a prominent part in Yeovil's season. Instead, he didn't make it onto a single teamsheet, with Football League restrictions on the number of loans that can be fielded in a matchday squad ultimately scuppering his chances of making a breakthrough. As such, he was to exit with Glovers fans not having seen him kick a ball.
