Donawa Will Not Go Cheap - Darlington Manager

Alun Armstrong has warned potential buyers that Justin Donawa will “not go cheap” should the 23-year-old leave Darlington.

The pacey attacker with 20 caps for Bermuda has caught the eye in his first season in English football, scoring nine times and nailing down a spot on the right wing.

With impressive aerial ability too given a background in athletics, Donawa is a player bound to be interesting clubs higher up the ladder.

“He’s got something you cannot teach and that’s pace. He’s scoring goals and he’s got massive potential,” said Armstrong, of a talent previously with Black Rock FC in the US.

“There’s not many people like him, he’s a sheer athlete and if you had time to work with him it would be a no-brainer to sign him.

“But he’ll not go cheap. If a Football League club comes calling we would not stand in his way, but it’s got to be the right deal for the club as well.

“He’s so powerful off the mark he there’s before you know it. He’s got the ability to do that, to get in front of people, and that’s something you cannot teach.”

Donawa is under contract for the remainder of this season and Quakers have an option to extend his deal for a further year.

Armstrong added: “Justin had a really quiet game but we didn’t help him by keeping lumping balls into him.

“He’s an outlet, yes, but we can’t keep you can’t keep doing that, their left-back got on top and did exceptionally well.

“I think they had marked his card from our previous game against them when Justin had the better of him.

“Justin has played a lot of games recently, he’s had a lot of minutes, so I just thought we should get him off because the game was gone and rest his legs for next week.”
